Balloons and confetti are both highly sought after décor pieces to add charm to any special occasion including birthdays, weddings or Christmas. You may either opt for a simple theme by making a balloon and confetti backdrop. However, if you are a DIY freak then put your creative skills into action and make beautiful confetti balloons by inserting streamers, glitters, mylar or metallic material into the balloons. You can make balloons with helium by opting for a tank or without it by blowing them manually. The tutorials given below would give you a glimpse into the various ways you can make confetti balloons.
Opt for pink or blue balloons if the occasion is your best pal’s baby shower.
Apart from putting confetti in the balloons, you can also include exciting goodies and hang it on the ceiling.
The golden confetti sitting on these balloons give them a gorgeous look.
Following the similar process as mentioned above you can fill this balloon with only golden confetti.
Transforming these confetti balloons into cute wands would be an excellent idea for a New Year or kids’ party. You can even make mini balloon pops stuffed with confetti bearing the letters “Pop Me”.
You can also make your confetti balloons sit on your party cake like the one shown in the picture below.
You can add some glitters inside the balloon since the confetti has been used to decorate the exterior.
A balloon within a balloon may seem a bit complicated but is not that hard to make. Go for a black outer balloon with a pink or blue smaller balloon if you intend to surprise all by revealing the baby’s gender on the occasion of a baby shower.
To make the moment of the gender revelation of your yet-to-born a memorable one, you can place blue or pink confetti inside black balloons and wait for your confetti balloon bomb to burst in front of your family and friends for a fulfilling experience.
Ensure that you do not make the balloons too early before the party begins as the latex balloons do not contain helium for 24 hours.
If you want a piñata theme for a birthday party, then this giant confetti balloon would suit your purpose well as it may accommodate a lot of candies, confectionaries, and goodies in it.
Writing sweet messages on this heart-shaped balloon and stuffing it with streamers and sparkles would delight your beloved to the fullest.
Though it is difficult to make giant-sized wedding balloons at home especially if you have filled cash in it, a helium tank would make your job easier. You can replace the money with confetti and flower petals. In case you are adding helium to your balloons make sure you do not fill it with too much of confetti as it will not float up for a long time.
These balloons arranged in a row on the tissue garland look appealing. You can even make a burlap garland instead of the tissue ones.
Your guests would be delighted to see this box containing a pretty balloon with confetti inside, also having an interesting message.
Unless you want your balloon to float high for long, you can inflate it exhausting your lungs or with a regular pump.
The rainbow colored confetti stuffed balloons create a stunning visual impact.
If you want to give the birthday money or coupons to your teenaged son in an exciting way, then this is what you can do.
Apart from stuffing confetti in balloons and waiting for the explosion, there are also other interesting things you can make out of them.
The personalized messages on the cannons are even more appealing.
Another innovative idea would be to make a bowl with confetti and balloon to keep your goodies during Christmas. You can even transform it into a vase flanked with your favorite flowers.
So the pick is yours to decorate your home with an oversized confetti balloon or make cute mini ones. Involving your kids in the project would delight them.
