How To: Fruit Balloons DIY

These balloon garlands were a cinch to make and provide maximum effect. By:

You will need: balloons (make sure to get some long ones for bananas), green paper for leaves, twine, scissors, tape

Step 1: Blow up your balloons. To really make them look like fruits, size them proportionally so that a blueberry is smaller than an orange, etc. To make the grapes I taped the small purple balloons in clusters.
Step 2: Tie the twine around each end of the balloon.

Step 3: Cut out leaves


Step 4: Crease the leaf to provide the 3D effect.

Step 5: Tape the leaf to the balloon using the end of the balloon as the stem.

Step 6: Continue tying the balloons to the twine to create the garland. Have fun fruiting!
