Plunge into the deep waters of DIY inspiration with this mermaid themed balloon arrangement. The centerpiece is held upright using a balloon stick, so no helium is needed. The balloon stick is hidden by a base layer of lavender mylar balloons tied together. The second layer of blue latex balloons are tied together in knots to form a cluster, then tied around the balloon stick with fishing line or thread.
