Can you make a spiral balloon arch without the frame? I would really like to make an arch but I don't want to invest in a frame just for one occasion.
Yes, you can make a spiral balloon arch without a frame.
If it's a rather small arch (for example to decorate a table) or if you can position it close to a wall (to frame a doorway, for example), you can use air-filled balloons.
The video tutorial from "Ask Me For A Balloon" shows how to create a 4 color spiral design with 5" round latex balloons, curling ribbon and balloon weights. No frame or helium needed!
For a larger, free standing arch without a frame I would recommend to fill the balloons with helium and wrap the balloon clusters tightly around fishing line, then secure them to sand weights.
Good luck with your balloon arch!
