Instructions to make a balloon arch step by step

When it comes to knowing how to make a balloon arch step by step, you should do the following:

  1. First of all, you will have to inflate the first balloon, which will make the first piece of the arch. To do this, inflate the balloon to a good size.
  2. Next, without tying the balloon, you must place it on the opening of the table, downwards and avoiding pressing it so that it does not break.
  3. Then you have to release the air until it completely fits the size of the legs or the bases of the arch in which you will place it. Once this is done you will have to inflate the other balloons.
  4. Later you will have to tie the two balloons between them. You will progressively inflate and tie balloons. When doing so, you will have to look for the balloons to have a similar size and adjusted to the arch.
  5. Then you will tie the balloons in groups of four balloons, but they will be tied without making any knots, turning the balloons for themselves a couple of times.
  6. Then set aside a group of balloons and we will build as many groups of balloons as we think the arch will need. Once you have several packs of four balloons, you have to join them with nylon, leaving a thread at the end.
  7. Next, with a loop, you will join the group of balloons that had been separated with another.
  8. Once the above is done, it will be time to choose the right place to place the balloon arch.

How to make a balloon arch without a base?

If you want to know how to make a balloon arch step by step without a base, or without a metal structure, you have to be very careful, since it is not an easy task but you can get a great result. In this case, you can only opt for this type of arch for closed places, such as shopping malls, houses or nightclubs. The reason is that outdoors it could be blown away by the wind.

To do so you will have to follow these steps:

  1. First of all, you will have to put two chairs to which to tie a rope. Depending on the measure you need, the distance from the chairs to one or the other will be placed. In any case, it is recommended to leave a space of at least 10 centimeters between each chair.
  2. Subsequently, with an electric or manual inflator, the balloons will be inflated, making sure that they are all the same size.
  3. As in the previously mentioned process, balloons must be placed in pairs, and dragged towards the back of the chair.
  4. Then you will have to untie one of the ends of the rope, pressing the first quarter of balloons, and tying the rope to four knots. In order for the arch to stand up, you will need to attach some weight to it. For this you can resort, for example, to large water bottles at the ends, tied to the knots.
  5. This will ensure that the balloon arch finally stays still. Regarding water, there is a trick that will be perfect to make a balloon archand it consists of placing water weights. To do this you just need to put one balloon inside the other, and fill the pump in a tap holding the neck of the balloon tightly. Then you fill it until the balloon is the size of a tennis ball, at which point you will tie a knot. This way you will have a fastening and security support for the balloon arch.
