Supplies for Tulle Covered Balloons
- 36″ latex balloons (You can use heart-shaped or round balloons. I used these white heart balloons from Oriental Trading) Note: you could also try 36″ mylar balloons.
- Tulle by the yard
- Personal helium tank (or have party store inflate the balloon)
- Wired ribbon
- Artificial flowers
- Hot glue
How to Make Tulle Covered Balloons
1. Inflate your balloon at a party store or by using a personal helium tank.
2. Cut a piece of tulle large enough to cover the balloon. Note that I used a rectangular piece of tulle that I had on hand and it wasn’t long enough to completely cover the sides of the balloon so it lays more loosely on the balloon. If you want the tulle tight against the balloon, cut a square that covers the entire balloon evenly.
You’ll want to make these balloons right before your party. You can expect them to last at least 3-4 hours before starting to lose air and sink. You could also try giant mylar balloons as they tend to hold their air a lot longer than latex balloons!
