How To Make Firework Balloon Decorations

Here's an quick a easy decoration you can make for your "Forth of July" party. What's great about this project is it's cheap, covers a large space, makes a big statement and adds a lot of color to any event. Simple directions below.

Supplies:
long twisting balloons in red, white and blue
balloon pump - these are easy to find at party supply stores and even craft stores
paperclips

Blow up at three balloons in each color with the balloon pump. Leave about two inches of a tail at the end of the balloon. This will help prevent the balloon from popping. Thread the tied knot of the balloon onto a paperclip (refer to picture).

Thread all nine balloons onto the paperclip (the more balloons the better). Close paper clip shut. Hang to decorate. Done.



Have a fun and safe Fourth of July everyone!

I think this is one that my hubby should have a go at. He likes balloons, the big kid that he is, so our duaghter's birthday might be a little more original! Great idea.
