Rainbow balloon arch tutorial

  1. Blow up all the balloons. You can do this in advance. Even 1 or 2 weeks up in advance. They might shrink a bit but they should still be round. If you want them super bright though, blow them up the night before. Use a balloon pump so you don’t die.
  2. Set up the frame with your chicken wire. We folded and shaped ours to form a semi rainbow arch so that there would be a puddle at the bottom. We taped the the chicken wire to the wall with strong gaffers tape and then chicken wire to the ceiling.
  3. Start with your first color. We started with reds and pinks and blended each color with the next. We attached the first balloons to the chicken wire with gaffers tape.
  4. For the second layer of balloons, attach the balloons with a lo-temperature glue gun. Don’t worry, it’ll be fine.
  5. The trick to making a successful balloon arch is the layers of balloons on top of each other. Don’t be afraid to add more! And blend the colors into each other.
  6. Top it off with some white clouds at the end and of course, a pot of gold!
