Discover ways to simply make a balloon arch that clamps to a tabletop or kitchen island. That is the right big-impact, low price celebration ornament!
I just lately threw a commencement luncheon for my daughter and made the cutest balloon arch to brighten. It turned out so nice that I simply needed to share it with you at this time. It was fairly easy to do however had main visible impression and it’s positively a budget-friendly celebration ornament. Let me present you precisely what I used and the way I put it collectively.
The balloon arch equipment comes with adjustable clamps, a collapsible metallic rod just like these utilized in tenting tents, 50 plastic balloon clips to connect the balloons to the rod, and a handheld balloon pump. However belief me, you don’t wish to use the hand held pump. Purchase the electrical balloon pump. It’ll prevent a lot time and vitality and you should utilize it for years to come back. It’s properly well worth the $18 funding.
I discovered that Walmart and Interest Foyer had one of the best colours/patterns of balloons for one of the best costs.
Step 1: Blow up all of the balloons! I turned on a film and simply began filling till I believed I had a great quantity. One tip: don’t use the electrical balloon pump straight on the carpet or it gained’t get any air flow and can get sizzling. Place it on a tough floor as an alternative.
Step 2: Begin attaching teams of balloons to the plastic balloon clips. I needed a random design, so I simply blended assorted colours collectively on every clip. I did three or 4 balloons per clip.
Step 3: Safe the 2 clamps onto your desk or kitchen counter.
Step 4: This subsequent step works finest if in case you have a second individual to assist. Slip one finish of the rod into the opening. Have one individual maintain the opposite finish of the arch rod when you slide balloon groupings onto the rod.
If you happen to don’t have a helper, lay the rod flat on the bottom, add the entire balloons, then place it into the clamps.
Step 5: At this level, you’ll in all probability wish to blow up extra balloons. It takes greater than you assume it should. LOL. However when you’re proud of the look of your arch, tape the rods to the clamps with items of black Duck Tape so it gained’t transfer throughout the celebration, simply in case.
Doesn’t it look so nice?! I’m actually happy with the large impression it had. The home felt SO festive and prepared for an enormous celebration. I really like that!
