Using the new, revolutionary ‘Balloon Hangers’ to make arches, columns and displays with air-filled balloons, is easy peazy!!…and with helium filled latex balloons, is an absolute doddle !!!
Arches (Air-Filled Latex Balloons)
There are a number of ways arches can be made. If you cannot support the arch around the door frame with cup hooks or drawing pins, then you would need galvanised wire or better still aluminium rod that will bend easily and is thick enough to hold its shape unsupported. However, you should make sure the ‘disc’ part of the ‘Cluster Balloon Hanger’ (discard ‘spring’ part in this case) slides freely down the wire or rod. Tape a cork to one end to stop the hangers falling off as you build the arch. Attach your inflated balloons to each disc then thread onto the wire or rod 8 at a time. Care not to burst the balloons with the pointed end of the wire…..no problems if this happens, other than you will jump out of your skin when you do!!..simply pull off burst balloon and slip on a replacement.
Once you have enough hangers in place for your arch, tape on another cork to the end you were threading, but allow enough movement to take up your desired shape..the balloons will interlock with each other. Insert both ends in a planter or similar, filled with sand or gravel chips……hey presto, an arch! (The arch shown used only 16 ‘Cluster Hangers’).
Once you have the components it is easy to recreate over and over again!
Quick Arch (Also For Helium Filled Latex Balloons)
If you are able to screw a few cup hooks, or drawing pins around the door frame, then the process is even easier. Using string or nylon fishing wire (this is not easily seen), simply knot one end, thread as before then knot the final hanger in place. Tie the hangers at intervals to the cup hooks or drawing pins…simple!
To make ‘balloon columns’ either side of a door or for room corners, use the ’8-Cluster Balloon Hanger’ (again the spring part is not required for this). Attach your inflated balloons to each discs, then stack on top of one another 8 at a time, as you thread string or fishing wire through the central hole. At your desired height knot off and you have a column!…..repeat as required. Inside, you could secure by tieing the hangers at intervals to the door frame, with drawing pins or duck tape for plastic doors……Balloon columns in minutes!! (Each column shown used 4 ‘Cluster Hangers’).
Large Clusters To Massive Clusters!!
For large clusters simply tie together the ‘loop ends’ of the ‘springs ’ from either the ’3-Corner Balloon Hangers’ or ’8-Cluster Balloon Hangers’…..keep going, Knotting occasionally to hold the shape,…the skies the limit!…massive clusters in minutes!
Attach to walls, ceilings centres, corners…infact anything…..even gate posts! For a great display!
We hope this information has been usefull and you will have fun making great displays for all occasions.
