Step 1: (a) Tie a gold and white balloon together. (b) Tie two white balloons together. (c) Cut the tails off the balloons, this creates a cleaner look.


Step 2: Twist the two pairs together, locking them in place. You should now have a quad – four balloons tied together.


Step 3: Repeat steps 1-3 until you’ve created a total of four quads like the ones below.


Step 4: Use a piece of ribbon or fishing line and tightly tie it around one quad.


Step 5: Tie ribbon around the next set of quads connecting two quads together. Pull string to make sure the balloons are tight in place.


Step 6: Once you’ve tied and connected all four quads, tie a knot at the end and cut the remaining of the ribbon.


Step 7: Fill in the gaps with leaf picks of your choice. (Faux pinecones are optional)


Step 8: The last step is to use a hot glue gun and glue the faux pumpkins over any gaps.

…And now you’re done! Enjoy the party!
