How To Create Your Own Balloon Garland

Wedding Decor, Baby Shower Decorations, Party Decorations


Balloon Garlands are the Number 1 Party Piece world wide at the moment!! And we know why!! They look fantastic, they make a huge impression on a budget, you do not need to use Helium to create them and best of all as they are air filled you can create the balloon garland a few days in advance of the party which is always a massive bonus as who want’s to be worried about frantically decorating their house while juggling food, cake and guests arriving any moment!! Don’t worry we have all been there and that is why the team here at One Stop Kids Party Shop have gone crazy for the DIY Balloon garland Kits.

Balloon garlands are now very popular as wedding balloons and wedding decorations. At a wedding you need at least one large feature piece that can be used to as a photo backdrop or behind the main wedding table and a balloon garland is the perfect answer.

Many customers also wish to use a balloon garland as a back drop to capture memorable photographs of special occasions such as birthday parties, baby shower parties, christening’s, Christmas parties, Easter gatherings and the list goes one.

With One Stop Kids Party Shop DIY balloon garland kits, they don’t have to be used strictly to create a balloon cloud or balloon garland the balloons and balloon strip can also be used to create a balloon arch. Wedding balloon arches and birthday balloon arches are a fantastic way to wow your guests and just create a fantastic atmosphere. As you can see the team here at One Stop Kids Party Shop is very passionate about the latest developments in balloon colours and balloon styling. Gone as the days of putting a few cheap mis matched balloons around the place or tied to the letter box, balloons have developed and progressed into true styling tools in the past two years. 2018 really saw a massive advancement in balloons with the introduction of confetti balloons, big jumbo latex balloons and chrome coloured balloons.

How it Works

Here at One Stop Kids Party Shop we supply DIY Balloon Garland Kits in many different colours schemes. We help our customers to create their very DIY balloon garland kit by supplying a 3 Metre long Plastic Balloon Decorating Strip with their kit, that means at the end the balloon garland can be up to 3 Metres long. However you can cut the strip down to make it smaller, or cut it into two or three different pieces to create a few smaller balloon garlands. What we love about DIY balloon garlands is they allow for individual creativity and imagination. We usually get our customers to email us their creations and it is just so exciting and rewarding to see how different people take the same items and add their very unique touch on it.

The Balloon Decorating Strip is designed for any size balloon. Balloons may be inflated with air or helium. Two hole sizes are provided. The smaller for balloons 3″ to 9″ and the larger for balloons 9″ to 18″. You may not need to use all holes provided. This clear, polyethylene strip is practically invisible as it holds up to 12 balloons per foot.

1. Use all same size balloons or stagger larger and smaller balloons. Choose colors to complement your event space. Inflate and tie the balloons. TIP IF you are wanting some of your larger 28cm balloons to have that nice round look like so many balloon garlands have then just don’t inflate them fully and you will see how they are nice and round, just play around a bit until you reach your desired look.

2. Cut strip to desired length for clusters, arches, streamers or garlands. Leave extra on the ends for fastening the decoration once complete.

3. Pinch the lip of the balloon together and pull the knot in the balloon neck through the hole.

4. Attach balloons to one or both sides of the strip to create an even cluster. Explore variations until you recieve your desired look. Skip a hole if balloons are too tight.

5. Use as is or attach accessories to complement your event theme such as curling ribbon, flowers, leaves, tulle, etc. These finishing special touches to your garland can be found at stores such as Kmart, The reject Shop, Dollar Stores and Target/Spotlight however Target and Spotlight tend to be a little more pricey.

6) We always remind our customers to NOT OVER INFLATE THEIR BALLOONS it is tempting to over inflate your balloon perhaps thinking it will last longer, look bigger than it is or just plain error, this is a big No No. Over inflated balloons look ugly think about the type of balloon that looks like a light globe compared to a nice tear drop shape. The over inflated one is the the ugly light globe shape one and they really do not look appealing to look at and they certainly will look really yuck on your Balloon Garland. You want your balloon to still be a bit squishy for a balloon garland and leave a long tail as this will make putting them all together much easier later. PLEASE NOTE THESE BALLOONS ARE VERY HIGH QUALITY YOU CAN NOT BLOW THEM UP WITH YOUR MOUTH YOU WILL NEED EITHER A HAND HELD PUMP OR HELIUM. SOME OF OUR KITS COME WITH A HAND HELD PUMP SOME DO NOT. WE CAN SELL YOU ONE SEPARATELY IF NEEDED THANKS.

7) You do not have to use the balloon strip to create your DIY Garland kit that you purchase from us. There are many other creative ways to put together a DIY balloon garland and we will put some links to some great You Tube Tutorials below.

8) The most important things to remember are allow extra time so you don’t get flustered. Do not over inflate your balloons or they will pop shortly after been inflated as balloons expand. Don’t put to much pressure on your self to get it right as there really is not right or wrong way to create a DIY balloon garland it is all about having fun and letting your creativity run wild.
