How do I attach large foil letters to a balloon arch?

I want to make a large arch way with a 4 letter name in the centre I know how to make an arch with latex balloons but unsure how to connect the large foil letters to keep them in place.


The best way to attach balloon letters or other foil balloons to an arch is to use double-sided tape. Place a strip of tape on the back of the balloon's neck and then fold the neck over itself with the fishing line on the inside.

This keeps the neck flat and prevents the balloon from twisting or sliding.

The balloon pros over at recommend to use double-sided foam tape rather than normal adhesive tape for best results.

Hope that helps. Would love to see a photo of your arch. Simply post it to my Facebook Page.
