DIY New Years Eve Balloons
It’s my final blog post of the year and I’m going out with a pop, clink, and a fizz with these New Years Eve balloons, complete with a champagne balloon weight! Because really, what more do you need to celebrate NYE than a balloon and a bottle of bubbly? At least, for me that sounds like a party!
These balloons would be fun to make whether you’re staying home, heading to a friend’s to celebrate, or throwing a big party. Whip up a bunch of them to use as decorations or give out to guests!

How to Make New Years Eve Balloons
Step 1: Cut out numbers from cardstock
Cut out numbers from different colors of cardstock using a cutting machine, or by freehand cutting them. I used a Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut out my numbers – here is my 2018 balloon numbers template for you to use if you like!
Step 2: Fill balloon with confetti and helium
Fill a clear balloon with confetti (a small funnel helps with this). Inflate the balloon with helium and tie with curling ribbon. Tie the other end to a small bottle of champagne as a festive alternative to a balloon weight! I found the mini La Marca prosecco bottles at my local Target.
Step 3: Tape numbers to ribbon
Use double-sided tape to add the numbers to the curling ribbon.
I love these mini individual prosecco bottles, but you could always tie your balloon to a full-sized bottle of bubbly as well!
