Air filled balloon columns need some constructional elements: a sturdy base and a pole.
You can get ready made balloon stands from specialized balloon suppliers, or you could make them yourself. We show you how to do it in a few simple steps.
You should be able to get all these items at your local DIY or hardware stores (unless you live in Germany, my home country, where it takes you at least half a day, several shops and nerves of steel to get what you need...).
Take your 1/2" pipe flange and place it centrally on the timber base. You can find the center of the board by marking out two diagonal lines from corner to corner (fig. 1). Then screw the flange into position (fig. 2).
Now screw the conduit into the flange (fig. 3) and that's it! Your DIY stand for your balloon tower is finished.
