Our latest balloon installation pays tribute to one of our favorite cities in the world- Paris! The iconic Eiffel Tower would make the PERFECT backdrop for a Parisian themed bash. Find out how to make it for yourself….
Step 1: Download the Eiffel Tower PDF and project it onto a large, blank wall. Lightly trace the Eiffel Tower design with a pencil.
Step 2: Apply strips of Shurtape within the outline of the Eiffel Tower.
Step 3: Inflate a bunch of 260Q balloons in caribbean blue. Release a bit of air from each balloon before knotting, so that the balloon has less tension.
Step 4: Fill in the design with balloons. To make balloons to size, inflate a balloon to the length that you need, knot both ends, and trim off the leftovers.
Step 5: To create the top of the tower, inflate a 260Q balloon, leaving a 3 inch balloon tail at the tip. Knot the balloon and trim off the extra. Create a flag to attach to the tower by inflating a 160Q balloon in carribean blue, twisting sections and knotting off the balloon to create a 3 balloon wide section. Attach to the wall with Shurtape, next to the balloon tail. Repeat this process with a white 160Q and a red 160Q balloon to complete your French flag. Your balloon wall is complete!
