The Best DIY Tips For Creating Beautiful Baby Shower Balloons

Below are some easy ideas for creating beautiful baby shower balloons! Balloons are no longer the cheesy, plain, smack-you-in-the-face decorations that they used to be. With a few creative tweaks, you can easily transform them into elegant masterpieces - or adorable theme-related decorations.

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

Balloon arch garland are the latest trend and they are absolutely beautiful! By taking chicken wire and fishing line, you can create a stunning masterpiece for the baby shower. The cool thing is - you don't need helium for this project. Just use an air pump to quickly inflate the balloons. Get balloons in all sizes from small to large - adding flowers and greenery also gives it a festive and elegant look.

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 is a take on the balloons from above, only they added festive gold confetti and hung the balloons from wooden dowels poked in cute white pots. So pretty and elegant! The cool thing is, you can use these as baby shower decorations and then raffle them of to guests to take home - or give to each guest as a baby shower party favor!

Believe it or not, this cute baby shower decoration is also a baby shower game! Each bag has a baby-related item in it that starts with the letter on the bag. Give each guest a piece of paper with the letters B A B Y  S H O W E R written down the side of the paper. Have them write their name on the top and then fill in what they think is in each bag according to the letters on the bags. Ex: you might put booties in the B bag, apple sauce in the A bag, and so on. The guest who guests the most correct, wins a baby shower prize!

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!
