DIY Balloon Topiary

5 Materials
10 Minutes

These DIY Balloon Topiarys are a quick and easy way to dress up your party tables / decor and add some height for visual interest.

To begin, Blow up four balloons. Be careful not to overfill or they could pop during the assembly process.

Tie the balloons together in sets of two.

Then take two sets and twist their centers around each other multiple times.

You'll end up with something that looks like this.

In this image, there are three balloons at the base and one on top.

Repeat this process until you have the desired amount of balloon sets.

I used 3 sets for each of my topiary centerpieces.

Next you'll need to fill some sort of base.

I used small terracotta pots, but anything that fits your theme will do.

Place a small block of Styrofoam into the base of the pot. You'll also need to fill in the surrounding space with something heavy. I used rocks.

Stick a wooden dowel rod at the desired height into the center of the styrofoam block.

Then simply slide your balloon sets onto the dowell and arrange until you get your desired look.

i used some iridescent gift bag filler to cover the Styrofoam. Cheap and easy, but they add a bit impact to your party table decor.
