Today we’re sharing a mini version of a balloon arch and would look great as a table centerpiece of photobooth backdrop. Balloon arches are actually really easy to make and mini balloon arches are even easier (less to blow up!) Don’t miss all our other St. Patrick’s Day ideas!
Materials: 6″ balloons in rainbow colors (we used 18 different colors in varying shades + white), wire, wire cutters, balloon pump
Step 1: Start by blowing up at least 4 balloons in every color except white. (Each layer of the arch requires 4 balloons.)
Step 2: Tie 2 balloons of the same color together. Repeat with the other 2 balloons of that color.
Step 3: Twist both sets of tied balloons together.
Step 4: Then twist the 4 balloons around long piece of wire. (Don’t wire until you’ve finished attaching all the balloons.)
Step 5: Arrange the balloons around the wire so they’re shaped like a 4 leaf clover.
Step 6: Repeat steps 2-5 with all balloon colors. Push all the colors together tightly.
Step 7: Blow up white balloons in different sizes. Tie them together in groups of 3 and 4 and twist around the wire on both sides of the rainbow.
Step 8: Center on a table on a stabilize with tape. Enjoy!
