DIY Baseball Balloons
Treat your little slugger to an all-star surprise with this easy-to-make DIY Baseball Balloon.
- Balloon Time Helium Tank
- White Mylar balloon
- 14-inch cake circle (or similar object)*
- Broad-tip red marker
- Red sticky notes
*You can also use a large round platter or other object of similar size as your tracing guide.
- Set the cake circle on top of one side of a (non-inflated) Mylar balloon. Use the red marker to trace along the edge of the circle to create a baseball “seam”. Draw a 2nd seam on the other side of the balloon. (To create a double-sided baseball, flip the balloon over and repeat the lines on the back.)
- Fill the balloon using your Balloon Time Helium Tank. Note: most Mylar balloons are self-sealing.
- Time to add the baseball stitches. First, stick a couple pieces of rolled tape to the back of the helium-filled balloon, and use them to stick the balloon to your work surface.
- Peel a sticky note from the stack and cut off the top portion that has the adhesive on the back. Cut this strip in half to create the first two “stitches”. Repeat this process until both baseball seams are covered with stitches (repeat process on the back for a double-sided balloon).
- Tie on the string and enjoy! Use these balloons as party decorations, or attach one balloon to baseball tickets and hide it inside of a gift box so that the balloon floats out when opened.
