I mean, if we did Paris, how could we not do our own hometown!? Here’s our tribute to the city of perpetual sweater weather- a balloon backdrop of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Fog included.

Materials needed: Golden Gate Bridge PDF, projector, pencil, 160Q balloons (in coral), mini balloon hand pump, scissors, double-sided Shurtape

Step 1: Download the Golden Gate Bridge PDF and project the image onto a large blank wall. Lightly trace the design with a pencil.

Step 2: Apply strips of double-sided Shurtape along and within the bridge outline and peel of the paper backing.

Step 3: 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.

Step 4: Fill in the design with balloons, starting with the curves of the bridge. To make balloons to size, inflate a balloon to the length that you need, knot both ends, and trim off the leftovers.
