Aren't these balloons just the coolest things!? All you have to do to make them is:

  • blow up some extra-large balloons in colors to match your event theme (no helium needed, just regular air) 
  • wrap tulle around each balloon and tie with ribbon
  • glue pretty flowers onto the base of each balloon
  • add more ribbon to the base of each balloon
  • now here is the crazy part ... string a piece of clear string (such as fishing line) through the top part of the tulle on the balloon
  • hang from the ceiling from the clear string
  • these balloons get rather heavy when adding the tulle, flowers and ribbon - so it works best to hang from the ceiling so they do not fall to the floor

These DIY glitter dipped balloons are so easy to make - and they are so cute! All you have to do is paint the bottom half of each balloon with glue (use a foam paint brush so the bristles from a regular brush don't pop the balloons.) Then dip each balloon in large bowls of glitter and sequins. Hang from the ceiling with fishing line.

This continues along the same line of adding glitter or confetti to the inside of the balloon - but what really struck me was the flower-covered letter! I am in love! The craft stores are overflowing with cool wooden letters - and all you have to do to create this look is cover it in artificial moss and flowers using a glue gun. You could probably do it with real flowers too - but that is a little bit out of my league!
