Ombre Letter Balloons

We love Letter Balloons because their possibilities are endless! A while back, we experimented with painted letter balloons and loved the way they turned out. So we figured, why not try an ombre version?! This project is great because you can use whatever colors you want! All you need is a little spray paint and voila: custom letter balloons! See our 3 takes on this idea below…

Materials needed: 16″ Gold mylar letter balloons, balloon hand pump, spray paint (in rainbow colors), washi tape, gaffer’s tape

Step 1: Inflate the mylar letters with a balloon hand pump, then tape back the balloon tails with washi tape.

Step 2: Spray paint the first and second letters of the phrase in your first color and let dry completely. Spray paint half of the second letter in your next color at an angle to create a more gradual ombre effect. Continue spray painting the remaining letters in the same manner, swapping one color for the next.

Step 3: Lay out your phrase on the floor to help plan out the spacing of each word. Tape the letters onto the wall with loops of gaffer’s tape and you’re all set!
