Materials needed:

  • Balloons in different colors and sizes
  • Air pump
  • Needle and thread
  • Transparent adhesive tape

Make your own balloon garland:

  • Before you make your own balloon garland, you should consider how big it should be. As a guideline, about 20-25 balloons per meter. For an extremely creative and atmospheric carnival wall decoration, we recommend using balloons in different colors and sizes.
  • Whether you arrange the balloons alternately, totally mixed up, as a rainbow or in a fine color gradient is purely a matter of taste.
  • First, of course, you should inflate the balloons with the air pump. To get different sizes, you should fill the balloons to different degrees.

  • Next, thread the balloons one by one with a string or a needle and thread. Make sure that they are directed in different directions and are not threaded too tightly together. If this is too complicated for you, you can alternatively use special balloon discs. To do this, thread the discs and then equip them with the balloons.
  • You can either fix the finished balloon garland with nails or alternatively tie it to the wall with adhesive tape. Another great alternative, which will make your work much easier, are self-adhesive hooks.

  • Once the balloon garland is hanging, you can fill the gaps created with additional, smaller balloons. These are best attached with double-sided tape.
  • The carnival wall decoration looks even funnier if you fill the balloons with confetti or decorate and paint them as you like. When it comes to carnival decorations, the rule is: more is more and the more colorful, the better!
