How to Make Ghost Balloons

Step 1: Inflate the balloons

Inflate 12β€³ white latex balloons with helium. I like to use the Balloon Time personal helium tanks. Note that these balloons will stay afloat for about 4 hours. You’ll want to make them as close to the start of your party or event as possible. As a longer lasting alternative to helium balloons, you can use air filled balloons on balloon sticks. These will last for days!

Step 2: Cut strips of party streamers

Cut 3 strands of crepe paper party streamers for each ghost balloon (my strands were each around 2 feet long).

Step 3: Tape streamers to balloons

Use a small piece of double-sided tape to affix each crepe paper strand to the bottom of the balloon, spacing them somewhat evenly around the base of the balloon.

Step 4: Draw on face

Freehand draw the ghost’s eyes and mouth using a permanent marker and color in. You can put a face on both sides of the balloon if you want.
