how to make confetti filled ‘sprinkle’ balloons

how to make confetti filled helium balloons

Guys, your response to the sprinkle party has been overwhelming- sprinkles resonate with you apparently. I get that- they resonate with me too. And, bonus, Piper Jane is totally famous on pinterest right now.

I keep getting questions about how to make the confetti filled balloons. They were super easy (seriously, SUPER easy), so I thought I’d put together a little mini tutorial in response to all of the comments/emails.To make a confetti-filled balloon bouquet, first, grab a clear balloon (I didn’t have any clear balloons left, so the one in the tutorial pictures is white). Then, grab a mini handful of tissue paper confetti. Fold the pile of confetti in half, and then in half again.

Once you have a little tube of confetti, push the confetti-tube into the neck of the balloon. Poke down until the clump of confetti falls into the balloon. Fill with helium (I got the helium tank at Target in the party section- it was plenty for the 20ish balloons we filled).

Add a ribbon tie and you’re DONE!

A couple of notes- you can use a funnel if you want (both the confetti-pile-folding and funnel were similarly easy).

Also, after about an hour, the static seemed to pull the confetti up the sides of the balloon (making the balloons more fun and confetti-ish).

For more sprinkle-y goodness- here is the Sprinkled with Love party, the sprinkle covered cake topper, and some sprinkle covered accessories.

Decked out in some sprinkle accessories- a sprinkle barrette and sprinkle corsage- the birthday girl […]
