Hi All! I have been making balloon arches / columns for years. I thought it might come in handy for summer parties
Supplies: latex balloons,helium, paper clips, fishing line, weight(a big rock wrapped in cloth,paper, etc, works well)
Take your fishing line and tie it to your anchor (big rock, what ever you have )
This works best with two people - one inflating balloons and one attaching to the fishing line. Inflate balloons and tie as normal, then instert the paper clip into the tied end below the knot. then, attach the balloon to the fishing line. Just keep adding balloons till the desired height is reached, then tie your open end to another weight. These are surprisingly easy to make and maneuver. You can also buy a strip from party supply stores. It runs about $6 and works on the same principle, inflate the balloons and attach to the plastic strip. Hope this helps......
