DIY Apple Balloon Weight
Party, Styling, Text and Photos by Confetti Sunshine
For back to school season, is there anything more appropriate than an apple balloon weight? In just a few simple steps, you can have a DIY surprise for your kids, their friends and teachers. Here’s what you’ll need to create apple balloon weights.
- Red latex balloon
- Cup or funnel
- Green pipe cleaner
- White permanent marker
- First, grab a friend and use the cup or funnel to fill the balloon with rice. It works best if one person stretches open the balloon while the other pours in the rice.
- Next, tie the balloon.
- Use the green pipe cleaner to create an apple stem around the balloon’s knot. We also added a little pipe cleaner leaf for fun.
- Take the permanent white marker and draw on a little apple detail for fun.
- Inflate your balloons of choice with the Balloon Time Helium Tank, add a ribbon and tie the ribbon to the stem of your apple weight.
Note: Adult supervision is required when using balloons. Please read all warnings and precautions on the Balloon Time carton.
