Simple balloon arches
I stumbled upon balloon arches on Pinterest, and became immediately obsessed. They are magical. Some balloon arches are super over the top and probably not doable without a team of professionals (like this one omg), and others (like mine) are easy to do on your own.
I want to apologize in advance, because I didn’t do the best job of photographing my process. To be honest, I was expecting the end result to be a total disaster and didn’t plan on posting about it. Classic pessimist move. But, I’m happy to report that I am confident you will be able to create one, even without helpful photos.
Here are 3 things I want you to know before we get started:
- Making this balloon arch was WAY easier than I expected – I actually found it to be therapeutic – and I promise you can do it on your own.
- I DID NOT USE THE CHICKEN WIRE METHOD! The chicken wire method looks easier than I assume it actually is, don’t even bother messing around with that. I made all three arches using only balloon tape + a low temperature glue gun.
- You HAVE TO use a hand held balloon pump, never blow up a balloon using your mouth ever again.
