Keep reading to learn how to attach balloon garlands to the wall.


Before you can get into how to hang a balloon garland outside or on a wall, you need the right supplies. Here are a few things you will need:

  • Command hooks
  • Outdoor-rated mounting hooks
  • Twine
  • Ribbon
  • Fishing line
  • Your balloon garland (check out our previous blog post on how to make one!)

Install Command Hooks

Command hooks will serve as the anchor for your balloon garland. They are temporary and can blend in with the wall. Behind your balloon garland, you’ll hardly notice them. We recommend clear command hooks if possible.

To hang them:

  • Wipe the wall to remove dirt and grime.
  • Attach the strips to the back of the hooks.
  • Firmly press the hook to the wall for 30 seconds. Press hard for a strong bond.
  • Wait at least 1 hour before handing.
  • Plan where you want the garland to go.
  • Have another person hold up the garland so you can see where to place the first wall hook.
  • Install the first hook.
  • Use your twine, fishing line, or ribbon to attach the beginning of your garland to the hook.
  • Hold the rest of the garland to the desired shape.
  • Plan and place the second wall hook for the opposite end of the garland.
  • Attach the end of the garland to the other hook.
