LONG BALLOON BACKDROP STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL
Long Balloon Backdrop Materials
- Long balloons in various colors
- Hand pump
- Clamps (optional)
Use our double-action hand pump to inflate the long balloons. Before inflating, give your balloon a quick stretch so it’s easier to inflate. Avoid over-inflating to prevent popping.
- To make a shorter balloon, don’t inflate the balloon to full length; tie a knot and cut the unused end. Or you can just leave the tail uninflated.
To create a fun curl, secure the end of the balloon to a pole with a clamp and wrap the balloon around the pole. Then inflate the balloon until it’s full. Lastly, undo the clamp and let out a bit of air from the opening of the balloon before tying a knot.
- If you don’t have a clamp or a pole handy for the curl, you can always ask another person to secure the end of the balloon to a broom stick as you inflate. In this case, we used another balloon pump as the support.
- Tie balloons in pairs with knots. Mix and match the length and color for an organic look.
- Hang the paired balloons along the twine, and feel free to add other decorations like mini air-filled balloons, or honeycomb decorations for an extra dose of fun.
- Voila! You've created a playful long balloon backdrop
- A long balloon backdrop will only last a couple of days, so we suggest making it the day before the party for the best look.
- Don’t worry if the curl isn’t perfect. Sometimes it makes the shape more fun and organic!
Warning: Children under 8 years old can choke or suffocate on uninflated or broken balloons. Adult supervision required. Keep uninflated balloons from children. Discard broken balloons at once.
