The first step in making balloon flowers is gathering your supplies. You’ll need balloons in the colors of your choice, curling ribbon, scissors, and a balloon pump (which is optional). It’s best to stick with round balloons because they are easier to shape into petals. Once you have all the supplies, it’s time to start crafting!
To create petals, inflate the balloons with either your mouth or a pump. When using a pump, be careful not to overinflate the balloons as they may pop! Once the balloons are inflated, tie them off with curling ribbon. Then cut off any excess ribbon and use scissors or your fingers to gently shape the end of each balloon into a petal-like shape.
Attach Petals Together
Once all of your petals are made, it’s time to attach them together so that they form a flower-like shape. To do this, take two petals and tie them together at their base with curling ribbon. Repeat this process until all of the petals are attached together in one large bouquet. At this point, you can also add leaves by tying green balloons between two petals.
