Only a few more days until Halloween, finally! It feels like it’s in full swing over here, and we have one last DIY before it’s trick-or-treat time. These fun 3D balloons are perfect for a party, tied up a walk-way, or even to add a little extra something to a costume! Here’s how we did it:
1. Wicked Witch: Grab a green balloon and lightweight paper for this one. Cardstock will weigh the balloon down too much! Make a simple “O” shape for the brim, taping it slightly off to the side of the crown of the balloon. Create cone shape piece, and then glue it on top!
2. Black Bat: Cut out the symmetrical wing shape and then fold down a 1/2 inch tab at the bases so you can secure it to the balloon’s sides.
3. Jack-O-Lantern: We liked the idea of using a yellow face instead of the traditional black, to give it the illusion that it’s glowing. Triangle eyes, a rectangle stem, and a toothy grin, and you’re done!
4. Frankenstein’s Monster: Once the balloon is filled, using a permanent marker, draw the stitches on the forehead. Then add the neck screws (using the 1/2 inch tab method again) to complete the look!
