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

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.
