Glue Dots

Using glue dots is the most easy and effective approach to create floating your foil balloons without helium. This is performed by expertly fastening your foil balloons to the walls, ceilings, or whatever other surfaces you choose to resemble actual floating balloons. Make sure you use lots of glue dots to keep the foil balloons in place during the event.


Step 1: Fill all of your foil balloons with air

Make sure all of your foil balloons are inflated before you begin your masterpiece. This makes it easy to select and adhere the appropriate balloon size and colour when needed. This is when your beloved balloon pump will come in handy. Pump up the foil balloon to fill it with air. Fill the foil balloon with air by turning the pump or pressing the pumping mechanism up and down with your dominant hand. After the foil balloon has been mostly filled, take hold of the filling tab and slowly pull the pump tip out of the balloon.

Step 2: Tie the ribbons to the foil balloons

Tie colourful ribbons onto each foil balloon to give it the illusion of a floating helium balloon. The ribbons may be tied on straight or with your scissors to create a lovely curling appearance. This approach works well when hanging foil balloons from the ceiling or corner of a wall—you can also use fishing line for a more subtle effect!

Step 3: Clean and dry the glue location

To keep foil balloons from sticking together in packing, they are coated with powder. This little coating of dust may completely erase the stickiness from your dot glue circles. Each foil balloon should have two or more spot glue tabs. To prevent the foil balloons in the arrangement from hitting the walls or ceiling and/or supporting the weight of other balloons firmly, use three or more glue dots.



Step 5: Arrange the foil balloons as desired

Use the photos above as inspiration, but don’t be afraid to use your imagination to create your own fantastic creations. Stack foil balloons of various colours, shapes, and sizes, then experiment with different decorative things to achieve the desired look.
