Hi! I've been asked to fill four large clear balloons with confetti and smaller balloons. I don't have a balloon stuffing machine so looking for any advice on how I could do the above. Many thanks.




Hi Lynn,

Manually adding small balloons into a larger one is a bit tricky.

The best method I've heard about is to use a small section of drain pipe and stretch the neck of the large balloon (usually a 3') over. Inflate the 3' balloon and then force the inflated 4" or 5" balloons inside.

If you have these kind of jobs more often, you might want to consider getting Conwin's Insider Balloon Stuffing Tool.

I've written more about stuffing balloons here.
