How to do a double bubble with collar without weighing down


I am trying to do a double bubble with 4 x 4 inch balloons around the neck but its weighing my center balloon down.


I am using helium in the double bubble and air in the 4 inch balloons; what am i doing wrong? The balloons are dragging to the side and not floating right.

I am trying to do a balloon decoration as seen in the picture.

ANSWER:

Hi there!

That's a beautiful design you are planning to make.

My suggestion would be to fill the 4 inch balloons with helium too. This way, you get additional lifting capacity for the double bubbles, which should solve the problem.

All the best,
Margit

Alternative to balloon collar
by: Cay Moore

Hi,

If you are finding it tricky using the 5" for your collar, try substituting voile or ribbon for your collar, just as pretty and lightweight.

Good luck.
