Lollipop Balloon

Lollipop Balloon

I know how to make a lollipop balloon through balloon twisting, but how do you fix it on a stick? Similar to attached pic.


ANSWER:

Hi Emma,

I haven't done this myself. I think one possibility to fix the twisted balloon to the stick would be to use an adhesive.

Try using either a cold glue gun or Oasis Floral Adhesive. Both methods work well for gluing latex balloons to each other. It should also work to glue a balloon to a stick.

Best of luck and let us know if it worked.

Other Ways to Attache the Lollipop Balloon

Hi! I love the site too! I'm a twister starting to do Deco.

Other ways I might attach lollipop is to tie the end of the balloon onto the stick with a scrap 260, making a firm square knot, then cover with the bow.

Don't forget that Rubber Cement makes a great balloon adhesive. Just remember that it's a contact glue. That means you need to put a thin layer of glue on each side of what's being glued & what you're gluing it to, then when the two parts are dry, carefully stick them together.

It makes a decent bond & Debbie Stevens uses it to make "cartoon Hair".
