  • Thread the needle through the balloon nozzle, alternating balloon colors and sizes.

  • Lay the string of balloon on the ground, arrange balloons up down, and out towards you to the desired shape. Secure the balloons to each other by using the tape at the balloons' contact point.

  • You may not get the shape you like at this point, continue to tape them up till you achieve what you what.

  • Alternatively, secure them on the wall with tape.

Remember to snip off the excess zip tie to make it look neat!

Add in ribbons and use bright colours for maximum effective!

Blow the balloons up to size, and tie the nozzle to the link at the top of another balloon. Alternate the colours and link ~ 20 balloons together.
