I used this to make a rainbow balloon banner for my daughters Daisy troop last May when they had their bridge ceremony. Recently, one of my coworkers is planning a surprise for another coworker who is returning from work after beating breast cancer. I think we’ll make some of these banners (in pink of course) to welcome her back! Thanks for the tutorial! :-)

I love this idea and am thinking of making more of an arch…do you think helium would aid in that?

My husband and I made this for my son’s birthday. We made it the night before, and it was still holding up the day after the party. It looks so nice I don’t want to take it down!

IF you can tie balloons easily, here’s the way professionals do this.

Balloons are tied together in twos. Cross two pairs together and twist a couple of times- there’s your cluster of four. Twist this a couple of times around a string or fish line – push gently up against the next cluster- keep adding and this will create your arch/ banner! ( Slide carefully along your string/fish line or it could cut your balloon.

If you’re using helium do this the same day. Regular air filled balloons can be done days ahead and hung. Want to make balloons on poles/PVC pipes? Tie four balloons to a rubber band- thread then tightly on the pole.

Good luck and have fun!

Im worried about making it the night before with her party at 1 the following day. Thanks!

That would have taken forever. Try tying two balloons together then the second two the same. Twist the sets together to make a cluster of 4. after tying the string to 2 chairs across from each other simply twist the cluster of 4 to the string. The needle is not needed at all.
