I need to find out how to figure the dimensions for a balloon canopy that will cover a space of 10x10. I have the columns and need the formula.

Thanks!

Balloon Canopy Instructions
by: Margit

Hi Rita,

With dimensions I suppose you want to know how long the swags will have to be and how many balloons you need, right? This depend on what type of canopy you have in mind - the main types are full canopy, open canopy and criss-cross canopy.

There is an excellent section about balloon canopies at the BalloonHQ. And here's an article with instructions for a criss-cross canopy. It contains sketches which should help you in figuring out the dimensions for your own design.

You could also buy a balloon canopy with instructions at Ebay. This set comes with 75 high quality link-o-loon balloons, ceiling clips and easy to follow instructions for just under $25.

Hope that helps and we would love to see a photo of your balloon canopy in our new Photo Gallery. Submission is free and easy and you can even win an Amazon voucher.
