Supplies You Need:

  • 30 to 36″ round balloons. Get the balloons blown up at your local party store, but make sure you can fit them in your car!
  • Tissue paper and/or fabric in 3 to 4 different colors. The fabric should be light weight so it doesn’t weigh the balloons down.
  • Scissors
  • Lace Ribbon
  • Optional: Rosette for the top.

How to make DIY Fringe Balloons

  1. Start by cutting your lace ribbon in a strip about 5 to 6 inches long. This will take the place of the ribbon holding the balloon.
  2. Cut the fabric into rectangles approximately 1 x 1.5 inches. If you’re using tissue paper, there is no need to cut. Just fold the sheets in half lengthwise.
  3. Cut strips in the fabric/tissue paper leaving approximately 1.5 inches on the top uncut.
  4. Tie a piece of lace or ribbon around the center of the fringe.
  5. Fold the fabric/tissue paper in half, so the ribbon is on the left side. Roll it up and then wrap the lace around the top and tie it in a knot. Make sure to leave a few inches of ribbon free to attach the balloon.
  6. Tie your pieces of fringe onto the lace handle starting at the top. It looks best to vary the color of the fringe.
  7. Optional: Place a rosette at the top directly under the balloon.
