DIY Balloon Garland

5 Materials
1 Hour
Balloon garlands are very popular for parties right now. You can hang them up on walls or run them down tables. They add a whimsical pop of color and fun just about anywhere for any theme party. You can mix and match colors and sizes to match any occasion.
Thread the needle with twine and cut it as long as you want it with some extra slack for hanging. Mine will be about 6 feet.
Blow up the balloons with the balloon pump and knot them. Make some bigger and some smaller to create some dimension and interest for your garland.
Start to thread the twine through the end of the balloon that is past the knot. Mix different colors and sizes but don't worry about a specific pattern, it can be random.
Push the balloons all the way down to the end of the twine and keep going until your garland is full.
You can move the balloons around a little bit on the string to arrange them how you like them. You can place the garland on a table or use command hooks to hang it up.
I like to use various size balloons but to give you an idea, 50 5" balloons create about 5.5 feet of garland.
