What is the best way to attach a non helium balloon flower to a dowel?

by Gina
(Alameda, CA)

I'm making balloon flowers as a table center piece and will be using no helium. I want to attach them to a wood dowel then have them standing on a flower pot stuck in a piece of foam. I have had difficulty attaching the flowers to the dowels and keeping put in position.


ANSWER:

Hi Gina,

What are you currently using to attach the balloon flower to the wood dowel?

Some things you could try to glue the latex balloons to the dowel...
* Cold glue gun
* Oasis Floral Adhesive
* 3M Spray Adhesive

You can read more about the different methods at the "Tools of the Trade" page over at BalloonHQ...
