Venue decoration with mylar balloon stars and moons

If I want to hang foil stars from the ceiling, do I fill them with air or helium? And can I use fishing wire to attache them to the ceiling?


Thanks

ANSWER

Hi there,

You would fill them with air, and then use either fishing line (monofilament) or ribbon in matching colors to attach them to the ceiling.

Unless there's already a bunch of hooks in the ceiling, you also need a way to attach the strings to it. Try Glue Dots or Glue Lines adhesives. Make sure to buy the removable version, not the permanent one.

If the venue owner doesn't want you to attach anything to the ceiling, then you could fill the balloons with helium and have them float up to the ceiling. The drawback with this solution (apart from the cost for helium) is that you cannot arrange the balloons as you'd like.

Hope that helps!

Warmest,
Margit

Straight Pin?
by: Margit

Hi there,

I am not quite sure what you mean with a straight pin? Anything where you can securely attach the fishing line or ribbon should do fine.

All the best,
Margit

If the venue has any kind of metal above use magnets with monofilament.
