Eggcellent! Easter is coming up and we whipped up a little Egg Balloon Wall just for the occasion. See how we made it below!
We love this double sided tape because it comes off pretty easy from the walls (test it first!) and its perfect for holding the balloons in place. Hoppy Easter!
Materials needed: Easter egg image, projector, pencil, double-sided Shurtape, balloon hand pump, 260Q balloons (in pink, neon pink yellow, caribbean blue, and tropical teal), 5″ mini balloons (in goldenrod), scissors
Step 1: Draw or find an image of an Easter egg design that you like and make it into a PDF. Project the Easter egg PDF onto a large, blank wall and lightly trace the egg outline and design with a pencil.
Step 2: Inflate a bunch of 260Q balloons in all the colors. Release a bit of air from each balloon before knotting it off, so that the balloon has less tension.
Step 3: Apply pieces of double-sided Shurtape within the areas that you traced and remove the paper backing.
Step 4: Attach balloons and fill in the design. To make balloons to size, inflate a balloon to the length that you need, knot both ends, and trim off the leftovers. For the oblong balloons, blow up the balloon to the length you need, then tie the two ends together to form a loop. Add dots by inflating 5” mini balloons, keeping their round shape by only inflating them partially.
