So number one, today is my birthday!!! Yay, throw some glitter in the air!!!! Every bday I attempt to do some adorable DIY and this year is kinda my favorite. I mean look at this pink and floral goodness!
I started with an inordinate amount of balloons (light pink, pearl pink, white, and clear), glitter, confetti, a handmade paper cone (for putting glitter and confetti in the balloons), string, and a manual balloon pump.
I blew up all the balloons in different sizes and added glitter and confetti to the clear ones. Then I tied a string to something static, I choose my drawer knob and began tying balloons to the string. I spaced each balloon about four inches apart with a total length of 7 feet of string. I made a total of 5 strings. Then I taped them to the wall, by the string, adding tape to any area of string that I felt needed to be secured.
I flattened the balloons against the wall and occasionally taped one of them down too. Well, there were a few bald spots so I added a few free-floating balloons with a tiny roll of tape-sometimes more than one.
The wall didn’t feel complete so I added some silver dollar eucalyptus, lemon leaves, ranunculus, and silk peonies. At first, I tied strings around the ends of branches and tied them to other strings in the greater structure. This became exhausting so I literally started taping them directly to the wall or to balloons themselves.
This is what I ended up with, stinking cute. I placed a pink backdrop below my creation in preparation for my shoot.
Then just get cute and shoot!
If anyone makes a balloon wall I simply MUST see!!! Happy crafting my lovelies.
