We’re leaving for our team trip to Paris on Sunday — I can hardly believe it!! It feels like just yesterday that Jordan hid the letters P-A-R-I-S in our holiday souffle! Make this Au Revoir balloon backdrop to send a friend off in style on their next big adventure! With summer and graduation season quickly approaching, it’s the best way to wish them well. See the DIY below!
Step 1: Find a cursive typeface you like, then type the phrase and project onto a large, blank wall. Lightly trace the outline of the design with a pencil.
Step 2: Inflate a bunch of 160Q balloons. Release a bit of air from each balloon before knotting so that the balloon has less tension, then trim off the balloon tails. To make balloons to size, inflate a balloon to the length you need, knot both ends, and trim off the leftovers.
Step 3: Fill in the design with pieces of double-faced Shurtape, then remove the paper backing. Attach the red balloons to the letters first, then continue with pink and blue balloons. You’re done!
