DIY Giant Balloon Kiss1




  1. Inflate all 12 balloons with your Balloon Time tank and tie with fishing line.
  2. Using the images for reference, begin by taping the string of the bottom center balloon where desired, and at the preferred height, on your floor. Next, tape the strings of one balloon to the right and one to the left, slightly taller than the center balloon. Repeat with two more on each side, forming the bottom lip. Tip: when taping the balloons, it helps to stagger them so they are taped slightly behind one another and not all in one line.
  3. Now place one balloon slightly inside each of the end balloons, and slightly taller. Repeat with one more balloon on each side. Finally, place your 12th balloon in-between the last two balloons you taped, slightly shorter, completing the top lip.
  4. Step back and see if any balloons need to be moved or adjusted and do so until you’re happy with the kiss’ shape.
