Inflate 3 Balloons

1) Inflate 3 Balloons

Begin by inflating three different color balloons, keeping them uniform in size. Use a hand pump or helium to inflate.

Build the First Layer

2) Build the First Layer

Tie together the ends of your balloons. Then, tie ribbon to the center of your balloon cluster and attach it 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.)

Add Additional Layers

3) Add Additional Layers

Make another cluster of three balloons in the same color sequence. Stagger the layers to create the cool spiral effect. Add as many layers as you wish, attaching the ribbon through the center.

Top It Off

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!
