PAW Patrol Balloon Column DIY

Balloon columns get Chase's bark of approval!

Create pup-tastic birthday decorations with a PAW Patrol scene setter and balloon columns! Who better to put at the top of these balloons than the leader of the pack, Chase? Kids will love playing rescue next to their favorite pups, and you'll love how simple the columns are to create by making layers of 4 balloons! Wag a tail over to our Balloon Column How-To for the details.

How-To

Level Medium
PAW Patrol Balloon Column
Supplies:
  • 8 blue latex balloons per tower
  • 8 red latex balloons
  • 8 yellow latex balloons
  • 1 PAW Patrol balloon
  • Red curling ribbon
  • Balloon pump
  • Scissors
Follow Instructions
1) Inflate balloons
Begin by inflating your first blue balloon. We recommend using a hand pump because you'll be inflating lots of balloons. (Helium is not recommended because the tower needs to stay grounded.) Knot the tail of the balloon after inflating.
2) Tie 2 balloons together
Inflate a second balloon and tie it onto the first to make a pair.
3) Tie pairs together
Repeat Steps 1 & 2 to make a second pair of balloons. Take the two pairs and cross them in the middle. Twist them together to make a cluster of four. Make sure the balloons in each layer are uniform in size so the column will look even.
4) Cut a strand of ribbon
Cut a long strand of ribbon that will connect the balloons together. (For our 6-layer tower, we needed 70in of ribbon.) Tie one end of the curling ribbon around the center of the first layer of balloons — this is the bottom of the tower.
5) Make more clusters
Make five more clusters of balloons, running the ribbon through the centers each time you stack one. Alternate between blue, red and yellow-colored layers. Fit them snugly on top of each other and run the length of ribbon through the center. Almost done!
6) Add PAW Patrol to the top
Inflate a helium PAW Patrol foil balloon and affix it to the top of the tower with the extra bit of curling ribbon.
7) Create a scene!
Impress your party pups even more by making more than one balloon column — just double the balloons from the supplies list and repeat the steps. Place these cool columns wherever you want to get their posing on a roll! A couple around a PAW Patrol scene setter sets the stage for awesome playtime fun!
