DIY Clock Balloons for New Years Eve Supplies


  1. Inflate the foil balloons using your Balloon Time Helium Tank. Tie the tail with string.
  2. Cut out two arrow shapes (to be the clock’s hands) and one small circle from the gold glitter paper.
  3. Adhere the stickers around the balloon to form the clock’s numbers. To keep the number spacing even, I recommend starting with the 12 at the top followed by the 6 at the bottom. Then add the 3 and 9 on their respective sides and fill in the other numbers in between.
  4. Tape the end of the minute hand to the center of the balloon, pointing in-between the 11 and 12 (almost midnight!). Place the hour hand on top, pointing at the 12. Finally, put the circle on top, covering the base of the hands.
