Many people don’t know how to build a balloon arch, but it’s possible! Here’s how to make a balloon arch.

What You’ll Need

First, you should gather all of the materials you’ll need for your balloon arch. Here are the basics:

  • Scissors
  • Low-temperature glue gun
  • Balloons (around 90+)
  • Fishin line and blunt needle
  • Hooks
  • Foliage and fresh flowers
  • Balloon pump

How to Do a Balloon Arch

Once you’ve got your materials ready, it’s time to build your balloon arch. Here are the steps for how to build a balloon arch:

  • Sketch out your design, like the shape of your arch and the colors.
  • Blow up all the balloons. Create some smaller balloons that you can use to fill in space.
  • Use a traditional knot to tie the fishing line to the end of the needle.
  • Thread the needle through the inflated balloon bottom (the part below the knot with no air).
  • Slide the threaded balloons all the way down the line one at a time.
  • Alter the colors and sizes of balloons you use.
  • Once all the balloons are on the line, knot the line and cut the fishing line.
  • Hang hooks or nails on the wall (or door frame) where you want the arch.
  • Use the hooks to hang up the arch in sections.
  • Fill any holes in the arch by attaching extra balloons with a low-temperature glue gun.
  • Add a few fresh flowers or foliage to finish off the arch.
