Pineapple Balloon Column
We've got all the juicy details on creating this sweet pineapple balloon column! We used 20 yellow balloons, 16 gold balloons and six green twist balloons. You'll also need twine, scissors and a hot glue gun.
Fill a single balloon to half capacity with water and tie off; this will be a weight to keep your column from floating away in a summer breeze. Next, tie two air-inflated yellow balloons together by the ends. Repeat and criss-cross the ends of these balloon pairs to create a flower shape.
Use twine or curling ribbon to tie a knot around the end of your water-filled balloon weight, then attach the remaining length of twine around the intersecting point of your criss-crossed balloon pairs. Flip the balloons so your weight is at the bottom, then continue building up your pineapple by adding more criss-crossed balloon pairs and tying with twine.
Inflate six green twist balloons and twist ends together to create a stem. Finish by adding a stripe of hot glue to the gold balloons and holding them against your pineapple until dry. Now you're ready to party like a pineapple!
