You’ll want to keep up with creative ways to decorate, so check out these fruity ideas below!

Supplies needed:

·       Green chenille stem

·       Green construction paper

·       Scissors

·       5” red latex balloons

·       Balloon hand pump

·       Glue

Step 1. (a) Inflate two red 5” latex balloons. Tie a knot around the end of the green chenille stem.

Step 2. (a) Cut out two green leaves and poke hole near bottom of each leaf. (b) Loop the chenille stem through the holes of the two leaves.

Step 3. Slightly overlap one leaf over the other and glue together so they don’t move around.

 Isn’t this the cutest raspberry balloon you’ve ever seen? Hang this little guy up or use it as a table centerpiece. The best part is that it’s very quick and easy to create.

upplies needed:

·       Green chenille Stem

·       Green construction paper

·       Scissors

·       5” red latex balloons

·       Balloon hand pumps

·       Fishing line or ribbon (yarn also works for this project)

 

Step 1. (a) Tie two of the red balloons together using their balloon ties. (b) Tie another two red balloons together and then twist them around the first pair of red balloons. (c) Tie a fifth red balloon to the group of four red balloons. You should now have five balloons tied together – this will be group A. (d) Use fishing line (or in this case, yarn) and tie a knot in the middle of group A, leaving a long tail of yarn out.

Step 2.  For group B – repeat step 1 (a) through (c). Stack group B on top of group A. Use your fishing line and tie both groups together.

Step 3. For group C, (a) inflate four red latex balloons with half a pump of air for each balloon. (b) Tie two of the red balloons together using their balloon ties. (c) Tie another two red balloons together and then twist them around the first pair of red balloons. This group should be smaller than group A and B. Now stack group C on top of group B and tie them tightly together. You should now have all three groups stacked tightly together.

Step 4. Cut out green leaf and poke hole in the middle. Take the chenille stem and loop the stem through the hole of the green leaf cut out. Optional: Fold stem into an oval shape and twist at the top so you can easily hang this up for the party.


ORANGE YOU THE CUTEST

Feeling inspired yet?! We have one more DIY for you. Add fruit slices for some sweet citrus vibes! You can use these same steps below to create other fruit slices such as lemons or kiwi. It’s cute, creative, and something a little different than the regular fruit balloon décor you’ve seen.

Supplies needed:

·       Orange & white construction paper

·       5” orange latex balloons

·       Balloon hand pump

·       Scissors

·       Glue

·       Tape

Step 1. (a) Cut out orange circle with a diameter of 7” across. (b) Cut out white circle slightly smaller, about 6” across. (c) Glue the white circle on top of the orange circle.

Step 2. (a) Inflate five orange latex balloons. Make sure to only do half a pump of air. (b) Tie two of the orange balloons together using their balloon ties. (c) Tie another two orange balloons together and then twist them around the first pair of orange balloons. (d) Tie a fifth orange balloon to the group of four orange balloons. You should now have five balloons tied together.

Step 3. Tape each balloon down onto the circle paper.

Step 4. (a) Cut out little seed shapes and glue onto each balloon. (b) Cut a small white circle big enough to cover the center of the balloon knots. You’re done!
