Fake flowers or greenery

Step 1: First of all, I blew up a handful balloons, all in different sizes. For my party, I bought a 20 count (or so) bag in each color. Blowing up all the balloons was easier than I thought, since my kids decided to help out!

Step 2: Next, I gathered my needle, fishing line and balloons. Then I threaded the fishing line onto the needle, poking the needle through the bottom part of the balloon below the tie.

Step 3: With my needle and fishing line, I threaded more balloons to the fishing line. I added varying colors and sizes as I went to add diversity. Make sure to cut the fishing line off at the appropriate length, depending on the size of your garland. Be sure to leave enough string to tie off both ends of the balloon garland. It is helpful to have someone help out during this phase.

Step 4: After all my balloons were on the string, I tied small metal washers to each end of the balloon garland. This was an effective way to keep each end of the garland from coming untied. After I finished, I attached my balloon garland to a chalkboard sign backdrop using fishing line.

Tape the Balloons together

Step 6: Next, I taped balloons together to fill in the gaps. For this project I used scotch tape, but a low temperature glue gun is also effective.
