How To Make A Balloon Garland-Easy Step by Step Guide

How To Make A Balloon Garland-Easy Step by Step Guide

Balloon Garlands are an eye catching party decorating trend for parties and celebrations. Balloon garlands are the perfect statement piece that will wow your party guests. We create premium stylish personalised balloons for any occasion: birthday’s, baby showers, weddings, engagements, bachelorette parties, milestones, corporate & seasonal events. And for our Australia Wide customers we make DIY balloon garland Kits so you can very easily create your very own balloon garland, As we only use the most Premium Quality balloons sourced from professional Australian Balloon specialist you just know your garland is going to turn out amazing and will last for days.

Have you always wanted to create a balloon garland but thought you would need professional tools and hours of balloon styling training to do so? Well I’m here to let you know you don’t need either. You just need some patience, planning a good balloon pump and one of our easy DIY balloon garland Kits and I promise you will be a balloon garland expert in no time at all!! I love telling my not so sure customers that my beautiful daughter Charlotte (Who features a lot on my Instagram page) Created her very first balloon garland at 9 years old and she did a fantastic job. It was a 1.5M long rainbow theme garland so there you go you can do this!!

How To Make A Balloon Garland Kit

  1. Before you start making your balloon garland kit you are going to want to first establish the theme of the event. If there is no particular theme then you are going to want to decided upon the colour scheme. If you need some ideas you can check out our large range of Balloon Garland Kits or if you don’t see what your after please contact us via phone, text or email as we are happy to provide a Customised Balloon Garland for you Phone 0403811163 or Just remember we may need some extra time on Customised orders in case we need to order in specific stock to make your dream creation come to life. The more time we have to work with the better!!
  2. Once you have decided upon your theme or colour scheme then you need to decide where about’s are you going to display your garland. Are you planning on using command hooks to attach it to a specific wall, if possible are you able to put some nails in the wall if not will command hooks stick to the wall or ceiling. If it is not possible to put hooks up or nails then you are going to want to look at a backdrop of some sort. I will be creating another blog on building a Balloon garland backdrop so keep your eye out for that.
  3. Ok so now you have establish where and how you are going to display your garland, you now need to decide on the size. The most popular DIY balloon garland size is the 3M that seems to be the go to size. A 3M balloon garland is very powerful as it is a significant size to show case all the various colours and balloon sizes and it takes up a good size. However sometimes our customers prefer a 1M or a 2M garland as they are just wanting to do a small one to go above the gift or cake table. Or you may wish to get a 3M balloon garland then get another in a small size for the party table as they can be used as a table runner.
  4. You have now established the theme/colour scheme you have decided on how you are going to display the garland and you have decided on the size now you need to decide on how you are going to inflate the balloons. Inflating the balloons is the most time consuming part of creating your own DIY balloon garland. It is impossible to blow up the balloons for a balloon garland via your mouth because you will pass out. Also you can not inflate 12cm Mini balloons by mouth it just does not work and you don’t want to put hot breathe into a confetti balloon as it will muck it up. My advise is to get both a Dual Action Hand Held Balloon Pump and a Portable Electric Balloon Pump. These two pieces of equipment are going to be your life saver they are going to help you to create beautiful balloons and save you hours of time and effort. Both these pieces of equipment will last for a very long time so if you love parties they will come in handy time and time again or if you are only going to do a one of party and a one of Balloon Garland Kit you can always sell them on Marketplace or gumtree once the party is over as they are so popular at the moment you won’t have any trouble with re selling them.
  5. Create a large area where you can just inflate balloons and dump them in front of you, don’t try and inflate then create, inflate then create, inflate all your balloons first. I like to listen to my favourite podcast while I’m inflating the balloons I find this actually very relaxing.
  6. If you love the look of round ball shape balloons for your balloon garland then the trick is to inflate your balloon to full then gradually let the air back out until you get the nice beach balloon look then tie it in place. This will also give you a nice long tail on your balloon to attach it to the balloon strip or the fishing line.
  7. Once you have inflated all your balloons you are going to have to decide at the start what method and what design you are going to go with. Are you going to use the balloon strip that comes in all our DIY balloon garlands or are you going to use the fishing line. I personally use fishing line not balloon strip as I like how secure and tight it makes the balloons but many people prefer the strip so you are going to want to have a look at some you tube tutorials and decide what you think will suit you better.
  8. I now want you to go to the  Best You Tube Balloon Garland Tutorial Channel Ever!!
  9. After spending some time on the above you tube tutorial channel you will now have a very clear picture of what is going to be the best way for you to put your garland together, you should now feel confident, organised and excited to get started.
  10. Remember to go to our Home Page at Website Home Page-Purchase Your Balloon Garland Kit! if you don’t see the garland your after either call us on 0403 811 163 or email us at I find it really helpful when customers send through pictures of the garland they are wanting that way we are both on the same page.
  11. Don’t forget to show of your creation by tagging us in on Instagram!! Our Instagram account is One Stop Kids Party Shop Insta Account!!

Wild One Balloon Bouquet Set-Sunshine Coast Party Store

Wild One Balloon Bouquet Set-Sunshine Coast Party Store

Welcome to One Stop Kids Party Shop

This listing is for our beautiful Balloon Bouquets, perfect for a variety of parties and events. Please Choose from the drop down menu which bouquet/bouquets you would like to order. Bouquets arrive flat customer will need to have them filled with helium or air depending on how you wish to display them. For them to float you need to fill with helium. For locals on the Sunshine Coast we can inflate and set the bouquet up for you please call/text or email for prices 0403 811 163/, to purchase this stunning bouquet from our store please click on this link Wild One Balloon Bouquet Purchase


8, 30cm Balloons (Colours will depend on what set you purchase)

4, 30cm Pre Made Confetti Balloons.


Our Balloons are professional Helium Quality they are  designed to be filled to 30.2cm, think tear drop not light bulb when inflating balloons, light bulb balloons are look yuck and they are over inflated leaving them very likely to burst when they start to expand with heat as all balloons do.
– Please take note our balloon bouquet’s are shipped flat! Balloon strings are not included in the package.
– We have already done the hard, time consuming work of pre filling the clear balloons with Confetti, so all you have to do is inflate, please read instructions below for correct inflation of confetti filled balloons, they are gorgeous balloons but they do take reading the instructions to get the best look!!

If you are filling the balloons with helium the confetti will tend to sit at the bottom of the balloon and move around as the balloon moves, if you are filling the balloon with Air (Not Breathe) then you are able to create static more and you will find the confetti will stick to the sides of the balloon better than with helium. However please note different climates will have an affect on how much the confetti sticks to the side or sits at the bottom of the balloon. To get the most out of your confetti balloons please read the instructions.


Helium or Air (NOT BREATHE) Can be used to inflate your confetti filled balloons. The magic ingredient needed to get the confetti to stick to the side of the balloon is static. So once you have inflated your confetti balloons, try rubbing them on carpet or a piece of clothing such as a dressing gown or one that creates a lot of static and gently shake the confetti around the inside of the balloon. This may need to be repeated every so often. You can also have the confetti as a decoration on the bottom of the balloon and when the balloon moves around so will the confetti. Either way looks stunning.

Don’t be tempted to over inflate your balloons thinking they may last longer, this is the opposite! Over inflated balloons not only look ugly but they also expand with time and suddenly you may find all your balloons bursting. We will not be responsible for refunds on balloons that have been over inflated, if your unsure check out You tube for some fantastic tutorials.

You Can Create Your Own Balloon Garland-Everyone Can Do It!!

Create Your Own Balloon Garland-Its Easy

Welcome to One Stop Kids Party Shop! This blog is about The all important Balloon Garland Kits. You have mostly probably found my site because you have seen the absolutely adorable balloon garlands all over Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook. And if you have thought wow they are so beautiful but I would not know where to start on trying to make my own balloon garland kit then I’m here to convince you that it is not only possible but its easy. Easy does not mean quick as making a balloon garland is not a quick process but if you spend some time reading through our DIY balloon garland guide and the fantastic you tube tutorials on how to make a balloon garland that we have compiled into one guide which you will be emailed for no extra cost when you purchase one of our DIY Balloon Garland Kits. I won’t go into too much detail here on the ins and outs of making a balloon garland other than to say my daughter created her very first rainbow balloon garland at age 9 and she did a beautiful job that would easily pass to be used at a birthday party so this should give you the confidence that you too can make a balloon garland. You just need a really good Dual Action Hand Held Balloon Pump or a Portable Electric Balloon Pump and a good few hours to inflate your balloons then put them together. You can assemble the balloon garland kits a day or two ahead of time as you are using air and not helium this is the beauty of the balloon garland, it just gives you more flexibility that the traditional helium balloons, although in saying that if you would like helium balloons from our Sunshine Coast party supplies store we usually add a product inside the balloon called High Float and this extends the time that latex helium balloons inflate for which is just awesome.
