Rainbow Linking Balloons DIY Columns
Blow up a red linking balloon with helium. (Or whatever color balloon you want at the bottom of the column).
Tie the white kitchen string to the knot of the first balloon.
Attach the string to the gold bar balloon weight. You can tie a knot with the string or add a loop to the bottom of your string and secure it under a gold bar balloon weight.
Continue blowing up the linking balloons and tying them to each other to make a column. Tie them knotted end to tip of the next balloon. You can place the balloons in regular rainbow order or change things up.
You can see I made 3 columns, with all different heights. Make them however looks best for your party space. You can make two of these DIY balloon columns then attach the top balloons to each other to make it into an easy rainbow balloon arch!Helium, especially in small balloons doesn’t last very long. Make these as close to your party as possible. They should last for an hour or two before you’ll notice the string will start pulling them down.Want to skip the helium altogether? Tie the linking balloons together and hang it from the ceiling.
