How to make balloon numbers
by: Margit

You will first need to form the numbers with aluminium rod. We recommend using 1/4" aluminium rod for smaller and hanging designs. For bigger, self-supporting sculptures like a walk through arch or free standing numbers, you should use 1/2" aluminium rod.

When the frames are done, you need to make clusters of 4 x 5" balloons and attach them to the frame.

If you'd like to get step-by-step instructions for creating balloon numbers, you could contact Charles Prosper (the "Baron of Balloons"). He just released a new training series specifically for creating balloon numbers and letters. If you mention that I sent you, he might even give you a discount :-).

Below is a sneak preview of his training videos, which will give you an idea how to attach the balloon clusters to the frame:
