I could not believe how easy it was to make by own balloon garland backdrop. I honestly thought it was going to take multiple hours the night before Evelyn’s birthday (yes, I procrastinate), but it didn’t! Mind you, I didn’t go as big as I would have liked. I am so pleased with the outcome though, one of the easiest DIY’s I have done in a while. Follow the steps on how to make a balloon garland below and you will be just as impressed as me!

For this particular party I wanted it to be fairly simple. Adding the eucalyptus was actually a last minute thought. In the end I am glad I added it, though it does make it a bit trickier when building to add objects. I think it would have looked awesome plain as well. Whether you want to keep it simple to just balloons or add features to it make sure you always have a firm structure to tie it up onto.

Now in the title I call it a Simple. It is very much on the simpler side. If you don’t believe me, head to Pinterest and type in “Balloon Garland” in the search. You will   most likely find multi-coloured, gadget hanging, extra large garlands that are out of this world. I love those, but they aren’t so much achievable for me. At least not in the wee hours of the night, the night before the party. So here we are;

How to Make a Simple Balloon Garland Backdrop

Materials:

  • Thin Pliable Wire
  • 40+ Balloons (I used just under 40 for the one pictured)

Believe it or not, that is all I used to make this guy. Simple right!

Directions:

  1. Pull some wire aware from the spool. Do not cut it to the correct length as you are going to be bending and wrapping around the balloons.
  2. Leave about 1/2 a foot from the edge to begin. You want to leave this space to have to tie the garland up with.
  3. At the 1/2 foot in mark twist the wire around the first balloon. I twisted right over the know on the balloon.
  4. Every inch-ish (a bit less then an inch) tie on another balloon.
  5. Continue doing this until you are about a foot past the length that you want. You can now cut the wire from the spool if you wanted.
  6. Hold the garland up to get an idea of how the balloons will hang. Fill in any holes with extra balloons, same method of twisting just above the knot.
  7. Once you fill the gaps, viola! You are done!

If you are thinking about adding more detail and hanging objects, florals, etc to the garland. Do this before you hang it up. Everything is so much easier to do and manipulate when it is laying flat on the ground. For those I would cut small pieces of wire and individually tie them into place with wire for a more secure hold as objects will be much heavier then the balloons.

Have fun making your simple (or maybe not so simple) DIY Balloon Garland Backdrop and don’t forget to take a lot of photos!

My friend Julie from DearLoves Blog had a Balloon Garland for her son’s Donut party. It looked amazing and she told me that she got a Balloon Garland string that was actually made for making these garlands. So if you are feeling like you want to snatch one of those, I am sure you can google it and find one too! I have also heard that fishing wire works great, though I think I prefer the metal pliable wire as you can manipulate it so much better.

  • There are quite a few new faces around here since the last time I did a little "things about me" introduction. I love sharing strange bits about me and knowing who else out there can relate. Make sure to let me know in the comments. So let's get going on one shall we.⠀
1. Hey, I'm Codi Lynn. People close to me call me Codi. My name has forever been spelled wrong, one time the guy at Starbucks spelt it right and my eyes got so wide in shock... then I realized I was wearing a name tag.⠀
2. I haven't always had glasses, when I was halfway through my pregnancy with Sophie I realized I could no longer read the TV guide without squinting. When I got my prescription I found out it is common for pregnant woman to loose their eyesight... just another joy of pregnancy right there.⠀
3. I only just figured out how to pencil in my eye brows and not gonna lie, pretty pumped about it.⠀
4. A part of me wants to move away and experience more of the world but then the majority of me never wants to leave the area where my Mom, Dad and sisters are.⠀
5. My husband is convinced that one day I will like mushrooms. That's never going to happen. •

  • Somehow these two + Ezra made it into bed before 8 tonight, I'd call that a summer miracle.
•
This summer bed times have been all over the place. Do you as a family stick to a routine or find you stay up later in the summer months? Love to hear how you guys roll! We are pretty well all over the place with some decently late nights lately, which made tonight feel so so good.

  • These two are kind of like watching a game of cat and mouse. Here the cat is teasing the little mouse with her rose that somehow perfectly matches her @pemberleyco dress.

  • Had a night away tonight and I have a couple things to say about it.
1. I bought the new Almond Frap from Starbucks on the way out and it was 👎🏻😩🤢 Anyone else tried it? Better yet, what's your fav Starbucks cold drink?
2. Tonight speaking at @briteup_etsyyvr's social media event was such a joy. I LOVE LOVE LOVE connecting with people in real life and being and able to share what I've learned to help them reach their goals. Seriously, such a thrill!
