Sometimes it can be hard because there may be a lot balloons in your garland or arch, we recommend you to use the air pump to save your breath and time.

In this key step, we’d like to introduce the magical balloon decorating tape! I mean, whoever invented this stuff, definitely is a genius!!!
Cut a strip of the tape that measures the length you want the finished work to be.
Starting at one end, pop the tied openings of the balloons through the small holes in the tape,
Alternating colors and sizes of balloons.
Hang it to display
You need to decide where you want to display it: Tie a long piece of string to each end,and get your family or friends to hold it against the wall, and make marks at each end. Then you can either use the adhesive tape to stick the end of garland into the wall, or you can simply hammer a nail into the wall at the mark and tie the garland to the nail using string to hang it. We recommend using nails.
Finish!! Enjoy the party !!!
