Star Arch
by: BZB

I use two 10'x 1/2 PVC pipes to make my regular arches in order to not use helium balloons. (Saves a lot of money now that helium has sky rocketed in price.) But I also have made other shapes by bending the PVC pipe. You can take a hand held torch or a laminate tile floor blow dryer and use it too. You heat up the PVC in the area you want to bend. Make sure you use gloves cause it gets hot. When it becomes flexible you bend it to the desired shape or angle you want. A heart takes several 60 degree angles. Once you know what size each arm of the star will be you measure it out on one 10' pipe, heat that area and bend it to create the stars points. You can also look for connectors that are close to the angle needed and connect all the measured and cut pieces to make a star. I hope this helps.

How to make a balloon heart - some ideas
by: Margit

Unfortunately we have no step-by-step guide for a balloon heart (yet). Here are some ideas to get you started:

- Use 1/4 inch aluminium rod to make your own frame. Sketch the heart shape on your driveway, then bend the rod accordingly. Connect the ends with tape or plastic tubing.
- Build clusters of 4 balloons and attach them to the frame, as explained in our "Spiral Column" page.
- Start at the top and wrap going down one side clockwise and the other side counter-clockwise. That way the shape looks equally balanced from both sides.
- Hanging the heart from the ceiling is the easiest way to present it. If you want it standing you need to bend your rod at the bottom of your design with a 90 degree angle. These ends can then be put into a pipe or conduit that you have screwed into your base.

You could also buy a ready made frame from a specialised balloon supplier. "BalloonQH" mentions these suppliers in the US as sources:
"All American Balloon Supply" phone (714) 543-2255
"Koch" phone 1-800-457-3757
"Modern Forge" phone 1-800-288-3674

I hope that helps. All the best with your balloon heart,

Margit

p.s. I'd love to see a photo of your design - once it's done.
