Where to Put Balloon Flag On Display
There are so many ways you could display this flag balloon. Here are a few ideas I have done for this for the holiday celebrations.
Display on a wall in the home – As you can see in my pictures I did it on a wall in my home. If you are entertaining indoors or what a fun decor for your family this is great. Just pick any space in your home where you have a spot to make the flag.
Fence – If you have a privacy-style fence outdoors you can secure the balloons on your fence to make a backdrop in a sense. It is easy to do, and great, as long as it is not overly windy outdoors.
Garage Door – If you want guests to see your flag as they pull up to your home, make a flag on your garage door! I would just center it, and then make it as large or as small as you would like.
Do You Need Helium For This Balloon Wall Decor
No, you do not need helium. Since you are taping the balloons down, you will not need helium as it won’t be needing to float in the air. So just use plain air and save your money.
How do you get balloons to stick to wall?
I used this large packing tape and rolled it so I could create a larger size sticky area on the balloon. If you do too small of an area you might lose a balloon or two over time as they could fall off.
- 6 blue balloons,
- 11 red balloons
- 11 white balloons
- packing tape
- Blow up the balloons either the old-fashioned way or with an electric inflator. Use packing tape to make a ring of tape on the back of each balloon and stick it on the wall like in the photo.
- You'll have four rows of seven balloons in each row for a total of 28 balloons. This is a really inexpensive party decor focal point that is really inexpensive and fast to create!
