DIY PARTY DECORATIONS – FLOWER BALLOONS
These daisy flower balloons are so easy to make. They would look stunning at a little girl’s birthday party or at a baby shower! Great as a retail window display too! Make them in different colors too! No helium needed! Read on for the easy DIY –
You’ll need either 7″ or 12″ balloons in your colors of choice. I suggest buying at least two different colors, so you have a contrasting color for your center balloon. The larger balloons will create a puffier style of flower, rather than the daisy flowers shown here, which are made with the smaller 7″ balloons.
These are fairly easy to assemble. Let’s get started with the step-by-step directions:
Step 1: Cut two circle templates from chipboard or a cardboard box will work too. Cut one circle at approximately 6″ across and the other circle at 4″ across. I find that using a bowl or tupperware container and flipping it over on your cardboard or chipboard and tracing around the edge makes it so easy to make a perfect circle!
Step 2: Blow up five balloons (for the flower petals), make sure they fit through the 6″ hole circle template. This helps to make sure all your balloons are the same size and your balloon flower petals will look consistent. Easy trick! Next, blow up your center balloons (for creating the flower center), making sure they fit through the smaller 4″ circle template. A balloon hand pump inflator is great for blowing up balloons and can make it go much faster.
Step 3: Tie two or your inflated balloons together. Create two sets of these double balloons as pictured above.
Step 4: Tie a third inflated balloon together, on just one set of your double balloons.
Step 5: Tie two of the contrasting colors of balloons together, for your centers. Keep in mind, you want your flower centers to show on either side of the full balloon flowers, so you will want two center balloons in a contrasting color.
Step 6: Wrap the double balloon petals around the set of three balloons at the center. Spread out the balloons so they lay flat. Now you can see they have formed a flower petals and a complete flower shape.
Step 7: Wrap the contrasting colors of double balloons, for the flower centers, around the five balloon petals once, so there’s one on each side. Use clear fishing line to hang the flowers or ribbon or baker’s twine works great too. These look great hanging behind a party table or anywhere at the party!
