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