Cancer ribbon balloon display?

I am making a display for a friend's party tomorrow what should I use for a structure to hold the balloons (5" round?) in place? in the shape a of cancer ribbon maybe 5' high....

Thanks for any help!


ANSWER:

I would advise to use 1/4 inch aluminium rod for the structure. Please see my answer to similar questions about making frames for balloon sculptures.

Another possibility would be to use the so-called Rouse Matrix system, which I described on this page about creating a hot air balloon shape with balloons.

Hope that helps,
Margit
