It’s graduation season and, in my world, it’s birthday season too, so I have a dual-purpose DIY for you today! Giant balloon messages!! (I told you my theme of the year was giant!) I wanted to create something that would make a big statement and since it has come to my attention that you folks love balloons they were the perfect thing to make it happen! To celebrate the Class of 2013, I used giant numbers and to ring in any other special occassion, I wrote a little message. Both were easily strung on the balloon and make great decor and gifts for just about any reason to celebrate!
Balloons! (I used a 36″ round balloon)
Cut out your numbers or letters from your poster board (mine are about 15″ tall each). You can print off numbers/letters in a font you like to use as templates or just freehand it. I used a ruler to make sure all my numbers were equal width since I didn’t use a template. Tape your numbers/letters to the string of the balloon and that is it!!! I added some skinny strips of streamers (cut in half) to jazz them up. These will not weigh the balloons down so I just secured it to the ground by taping it securely. You could also tie them to a table or chair.
These make great party “WOWs” and the perfect alternative to the typical balloon bouquet that signifies the party house!
