This project is part of the DIY Halloween Costumes with Balloons Series.
The perfect mother-daughter Halloween costume for a color-loving duo: a birthday girl and her birthday candle!
Birthday Girl Supplies:
- Balloon Time Helium Tank
- Birthday party outfit
- Latex balloons in desired colors
- Fishing line
Birthday Candle Supplies:
- Striped outfit (jumpsuits and maxi dresses work well)
- Gold curve balloon (I used a 15”, found here, which does not float, but you can use a larger version that will float with helium.)
- Bobby pins
- Fill the latex balloons with your Balloon Time Helium Tank and tie with fishing line. With the party outfit on, the birthday girl is ready to go!
- Fill the gold curve balloon with air.
- Put on your striped outfit.
- Then, secure the balloon to the back of your head with the bobby pins.
Carry around presents or a cupcake for props, if desired, and you’re ready!
