Making a banner out of balloons is a great way to say Happy Birthday! Using large 6 inch letter boat decals – it’s a breeze to turn everyday balloons into an amazing party backdrop. Use the idea to make your typography balloons that say anything you can imagine; from a birthday wish, to congratulations, to a simple “have a good day!”
I love the versatility of this idea, and that creating it is as simple as applying a sticker! Plus, you can change up the balloon colors to make it work for whatever you might be celebrating this time of year.
To create the decal birthday balloon banner – blow up balloons, or buy a bunch from the party store to make it even easier on yourself. Grab a pack of 6 inch boat decals from your local hardware store, or buy them online here.
Take the sticker off the sheet and gently stick it on the balloon, smoothing out creases as you go. Done! Hang the balloons on the wall and stand back to acknowledge how awesome you are, and how much you just rocked that party set-up in no time at all.
Just a small note with these stickers: you get one stick – so make it a good one. Be prepared for a giant balloon pop if you try to remove the stickers. I bought an extra pack just in case I needed them. Which is good since this might be my new backdrop for every party I host ever! Boo. Merry Christmas. I love you. Why these balloons could keep talking all year long!
