Balloon garlands are very popular for parties right now. You can hang them up on walls or run them down tables. They add a whimsical pop of color and fun just about anywhere, for any theme. There are several different ways to create balloon garlands but this is the fastest, easiest method I have found. It's also very sturdy, unlike the hot glue method. I like to use various size balloons but to give you an idea, 50 5" balloons creates about 5.5 feet of garland. For the garland above I used mostly 5" balloons with a few 11" balloons.

1. Thread the needle with twine and cut it as long as you want it with some extra slack for hanging. Mine will be about 6 feet.

2. Blow up the balloons with a balloon pump (not helium) and knot them. I definitely recommend an electric balloon pump. Make some bigger and some smaller to create some dimension.

3. Start to thread the twine through the end of the balloon that is past the knot. Mix different colors and sizes but don't worry about a specific pattern.

4. Push the balloons all the way down to the end of the twine and keep going until your garland is full.

5. You can move the balloons around a little bit on the string to arrange them how you like them. If you'd like to hang your balloon garland, the easiest way is to hang them with command hooks and some extra twine.
