HOW TO MAKE A BALLOON GARLAND FROM KIT:
Step 1: Inflate balloons with provided balloon pump so they are round in shape rather than oval, you do not need to fully inflate. Leave a long neck at top of balloon for tying together. For double stuffed balloons (one balloon inside another) only tie off the inside balloon.
Step 2: Tie a 5” balloon together with a 11” balloon. Repeat until you have created 13 pairs of 11” & 5”. Tie a 5” balloon together with a 5” balloon. Repeat until you have created 13 pairs of 5”.
Step 3: Assemble pairs using the 4m string provided, leave about 70cm of string on each end for hanging. Secure 1st pair of 5” balloons by wrapping line around middle of the pair and secure with knot. Add a 11” & 5” pair by wrapping around line & sliding up to meet the last balloon pair. Continue to add each pair alternating between 11”pairs & 5” pairs.
Step 4: Hang up the garland, twist & adjust balloons to cover any knots and string.
Congratulations on making your stylish and professional balloon garland! Now enjoy the way it brings your party to life!
TIP: If you are making your balloon garland a day ahead, store your inflated balloons in a sealed bag. Keep them away from heat, sun and high humidity while being stored. This will help prevent them from oxidizing, becoming cloudy and losing their shine.
Illume Partyware loves parties but we also proactively design with the environment in mind. We use latex balloons that are made from rubber trees located in plantations that are Rainforest Alliance Certified™. The latex breaks down under normal environmental conditions like other natural products and this takes approximately the same time as an oak leaf.
Illume Partyware is also a member of PEBA and as such we continue to educate shoppers:
DO NOT RELEASE BALLOONS OUTSIDE - PIN AND BIN THEM WHEN FINISHED.
