About 2 months ago I got a job at a party store. Working there has been amazing. Even though I loved working in pizza this has been the most fun I've had at a job. Blowing up balloons, decorating the store, and getting to dress up everyday we're not really things I ever expected to be paid for. It's given me a whole new appreciation for holidays.
- 5 inch balloons
- Green paper
- Hot glue gun
- Hot glue sticks
- Clear tape
- X-acto knife
Step 1: Blow up 5 to 6 balloons to the same size. Making sure the bottom of the balloon extends to create that bulb shape.
Tape down the end of the balloon as shown.
Use your X-acto knife to make 2 small slits that will be perpendicular when the rectangle is made into a loop.
About 1/4 in. from each short end cut a slit.
Have one side go in one direction and the other in the opposite so that they can lock together as shown. Glue together.
Step 3: Place your green loop of paper at the top of the balloon. Apply some hot glue around the inside rim. Use a low temp glue gun to avoid popping the balloon.
I hope you guys have a great holiday! I'm now making a tradition out of having a Christmas DIY right before the big day.
PS: Tomorrow I've got a DIY wrapping paper tutorial in case you need any last minute inspiration.
