1) Inflate Two Balloons
Begin by inflating two balloons of two different colors and tying the ends together. All balloons should be uniform in size. Use a hand pump or helium to inflate.
2) Build the Foundation
Repeat the first step with two different color balloons. Place them with the other set to make an X shape. Tie ribbon to the center and attach to a balloon weight. We used two balloon weights for extra support! (You will need roughly 70 inches of ribbon for a 6-foot tower.)
3) Add Additional Layers
Make another cluster of four balloons in the same color sequence. Stagger the layers to create the cool spiral effect. Add as many layers as you wish, attaching a ribbon through the center.
4) Top It Off
To complete the balloon tower, inflate a thematic balloon with helium and attach it to the center of the column. All finished!
