Holly Balloon Sticks
Here’s an easy, last-minute DIY to try before Christmas! These holly balloons can be used as fun props for holiday photos, lined up as centerpieces on a dinner table, or given away as favors at a Christmas party. Supplies and details below!
Materials: Leaf template (small & large), green card stock, 5″ mini red balloons, 16″ balloon sticks, scissors, stapler, 1/4″ single hole punch
Step 1: Print out the templates (there is a large and a small).
Step 2: To make the leaves for 1 balloon stick, you will need 6 pieces of green card stock. Use the template to cut out both the large and small leaves.
Step 3: Place the small leaf on top of the big leaf and staple them together. Use the punch to make a hole at the bottom. Repeat this step for the remaining leaves.
Step 4: Inflate your mini balloons around 3″ in diameter. Push the bottom of each balloon through the holes in 3 leaves. Repeat with 2 more balloons.
Step 5: Grab all three ends of your balloons and secure them in the balloon cup.
Step 6: Once your balloon stick is attached to the cup, bend the top of the stick sideways (this will make the holly face towards the front.)
