If you’d like your balloons to float up towards the ceiling, fill your balloons with helium. Below are some easy helium balloon decorations to make:

  1. Balloon table centrepiece – these make a great focal point at any birthday or celebration, Don’t forget to tie your balloons down with balloon ribbons and balloon weights so they don’t float away.
  2. Balloon bouquet – combine a handful of balloons on strings into a bunch to create a colourful bouquet.
  3. Balloon ceiling – fill your balloons with helium, attach a string to them and then let them all float up to cover the entire ceiling.

 

Air-filled Balloons

Balloons filled with regular air won’t float up to the sky like helium balloons. Nonetheless, you can still create some fun decorations like the below using air-filled balloons:

  1. Balloon arches – tie together groups of four balloons and secure them to a wire or wooden frame base.
  2. Balloon garland – ‘sew’ the bottoms of your balloons together with a long piece of string or twine and then hang them up on the wall with some temporary hooks.
  3. Balloon columns – tie balloons in pairs and attach to an upright support or stick.
  4. Balloon table centrepiece – get crafty and glue some balloons together or use balloon sticks and cups to prop your balloons up into a fun table decoration.
