Looking for a fun decoration for your 4th of July party – or maybe a patriotic-themed birthday celebration or ice cream social? These stars, stripes, and *sprinkles* bedecked balloons are super easy to make… not to mention too cute to eat!
Displaying the Balloons
One important thing to note is that the paper cones and craft poms do add some weight to the balloons, so this will make it harder for the helium to lift them for a long period of time. I recommend a couple of solutions for this:
Getting the cones ready and filling the balloons right before your party starts. (I used Balloon Time tanks for these.)
If you need these decorations to last a longer time, you can air-fill the balloons instead and use an alternative way to hang them. Fishing wire hot glued to the craft pom at the top is one option, or balloon sticks slipped through the bottom point of the paper cones.
