How to Make a Christmas DIY Balloon Garland Tree

Step 1 — Align the three wooden trellis up to form a triangular pyramid.

Step 2 — Then, use the wire to attach them in all three bottom and top corners.

It’s likely that the trellises won’t line up perfectly, which is fine!

You won’t see that they’re uneven once the balloons are attached, they simply need to be securely fastened to each other.

Step 3 — Begin blowing up your balloons in varying sizes and attach them to the wooden trellis with balloon string.

To make the process go more quickly, you can also twist three balloons together at the knots, and then string onto the trellis forming a pyramid shape.

Step 4 — Once you have your balloons all blown up and attached, top with a fun accent start and style.

  1. Can’t it be built up without the wood? Just pile balloons up on top of each other in the shape of a triangle/tree without tying them?? And without strings? And hope it will keep! I love it .. going to build it up as I just suggested. Love the colours too. Please do try and answer my questions. Thank you

  2. This is so awesome! If I had the studio space, I would be doing crazy fun things like this all the time. Too bad though this one won’t last too long. Do you think it will deflate before Christmas?
