Creating Stunning Balloon Bows: Tips from Toronto’s Balloon Expert

We’re thrilled to bring you this insightful guide straight from the heart of Toronto, Canada, where balloon art isn’t just a decoration, it’s a statement. Whether you’re a local looking for unique balloon designs for your next event or an aspiring balloon artist eager to enhance your skills, this guide is for you.

Step-by-Step Tutorial on Making the Viral Balloon Bow:

Balloon bows have been making waves online, and we’ve got the inside scoop on how to make them. These bows aren’t just for show; they’re the perfect blend of elegance and whimsy, ideal for adding a special touch to any event. Let’s break down the process:

Choosing the Right Balloons:

  • We start with 9-inch balloons, inflated to about 7-8 inches. Adjust the size based on your space – bigger for large venues, smaller for intimate settings. We simply eyeball it but if you prefer to use a sizer, you can. 

Creating the Bow:

  • The technique is simpler than you might think. We use a ‘duplex’ method – two balloons tied together. Stack one duplex over another to form a cross and repeat this 35 times for each side. The 35 duplex will make a balloon bow of about 8ft from top to bottom.

Securing the Bow:

  • In our recent project, we braced the bow against the wind by securing it to the handrail of the slide leading to the ballpit.  We created 6 different attachment points, this step is crucial for outdoor events, especially in breezy Toronto weather!
