Balloons are an ideal choice when it comes to decorating – they are cheap, colourful and easy to use.
They can really brighten up a space and create a party atmosphere. There are so many different
ways that you can make decorations with balloons to add impact to your décor, so why not be a
little adventurous and try something new!
Most people just hang up a few balloons, but this has been done a million times! Why not do
something different with your balloon décor that your guests have never seen before? If you are
looking for some creative ideas for decorating with balloons, here is a little bit of inspiration.
Make Your Own Photo Chandelier
Why not use balloons to create your own beautiful chandelier and showcase beautiful photos? For
this idea you will need a lot of balloons, a helium tank and curling ribbon. Print off a collection of
photos that you want to show off during the event. At a birthday party they could be portraits of the
special person at different stages of their life, or at a wedding they could be pictures of the happy
couple. Glue the photos onto card stock and punch a hole in the top, tying the curling ribbon
Next, fill up the balloons with helium and tie the photos to the balloons with the other end of the
ribbon. You can then create the chandelier in any size you like by using double sided tape to stick the
balloon to the ceiling.
Glowing LED Balloons
It is possible to get balloons and balloon ribbon that
have been enhanced with LED lights. The balloons
contain a unique LED light unit inside creating a
fantastic glow effect. Simply pull the tab to activate the
light, and inflate the balloon as normal.
There are many creative ways that you can use these
glowing LED balloons and ribbon to create a unique
decoration – perhaps by suspending them from the
ceiling or using them within a balloon arch or wreath.
You could even use these glowing balloons to
illuminate your ice sculptures,
accentuate floral arrangements or light up your porch railings. Try using different colours of LED
lights and balloons, so that you can create different effects.
Glitter Dipped Balloons
Are you looking to jazz up your balloons and make them even more glamorous and eye catching? All
you will need is some balloons, some glitter or confetti, a paint brush and some decoupage glue.
Start by inflating the balloons and painting on the decoupage glue on the bottom. You will need a
thin yet even layer. You also need to decide whether you want to coat the entire balloons or just a
section of it.
Once the glue is spread onto the balloon, you can dip it into the glitter or sprinkle it on. Shake the
balloon so that the excess glitter falls off; then let the glue dry. If you want, you can add another
layer of decoupage glue over the glitter or confetti to make sure that it all stays on. Then just paint
the glue on over the top of the glitter and it will dry clear.
Splatter Paint Balloons
Another fun way of decorating your party balloons
is to give them the Jackson Pollock treatment with
splatter painting. You can use balloons and paint
of any colour, giving you a lot of creative and fun
options for beautiful decorations!
The first step is to set up a tarp or a protective
surface, as this project will get very messy. Then,
thin out the paint with a 3-1 water ratio, so that it
will splatter more easily. Dip the paintbrush in the
watered-down paint, hold onto the balloon and
flick the brush to splatter the paint across the
surface. When you are happy with the splatters,
hang the balloons up by the knot so that they can
dry. This technique will work with helium balloons
or ones that are just filled with air.
These are just a few unique ideas that you can try when you are decorating for your next party with
balloons – one of the easiest and most popular options for party decorating. They are cheap,
versatile and you can do so many great things with them, so get a pack of balloons and see how your
imagination can transform them. Balloons Galore has a wide range of Balloons available in many
different colours, shapes, sizes and designs – view them here.
