Rainbow Balloon Centerpiece

This Project Is Part Of The  “Rainbow Baby Shower” Party Series.


Make a balloon centerpiece using chicken wire for structure and balloons blown up in all sizes. We added some balloons inflated using the Balloon Time Helium Tank to give the centerpiece a little height without compromising our vision. Visit Oh Happy Day to get the full tutorial.

  1. Measure out the length of your table and cut a piece of chicken wire that fits down the middle of the table (be sure to use gloves so you don’t cut your fingers).
  2. Bend the chicken wire into a wave-like pattern, with varying heights, down the center.
  3. Fold the sharp edges of the chicken wire under, so they don’t poke out.
  4. Blow up a bunch of 11-inch and 5-inch balloons (in all different sizes and rainbow colors). Starting with the larger 11-inch balloons, begin attaching them to the chicken wire in an ombre rainbow pattern. We tied them to the chicken wire to make them more sturdy.
  5. Fill in the gaps with the smaller, 5-inch balloons. Once the chicken wire is covered, you can hot glue additional balloons on top to fill in any gaps. We also added in a few honeycomb balls into the mix.
  6. Weave colorful festooning or fringe in between the balloons to add in another layer of texture.
  7. Use an X-acto knife to cut fringe from colorful tissue paper strips. Roll the strips up so they create small tassels, and secure with tape.
  8. Tie the tassels onto strands of ribbon and attach to an 11-inch balloon inflated using the Balloon Time Helium Tank. Make sure you don’t tie too many onto one strand or it will be too heavy and weigh the balloon down.
  9. Place about six balloons at varying heights down the center of the table.
