  1. One of the steps on how to make a balloon arch is to decide on the size and shape of the arch you want. Also, you’ll need to know the height and width of the arch you want to make and you must also take into consideration the area where you plan to hang or display the arch.
  2. Inflate the balloons using a balloon pump. It is advisable to inflate balloons to different sizes, including small, medium, and large, to create variations in the arch.
  3. Once the balloon is inflated, tie a knot at the end of each balloon to secure the air inside. Keep in mind that you’ll need more balloons than you think to create a full-looking arch. 
  4. Attach the balloon arch strip or fishing line to the hooks or anchors where you plan to hang or display the arch. If you are  using a balloon arch strip, simply insert the knotted ends into the holes of the strip and leave about 5-6 inches of space between each balloon.
  5. Another step on how to make a balloon arch is to start assembling the arch by inserting the knotted end of a balloon into one of the holes of the strip or by tying it to the fishing line. 

Continue adding more balloons with different colors and sizes and position them at different angles to create a visually appealing arch shape.

  1. Keep adding balloons until you achieve the desired length and fullness. Also remember to periodically step back and assess the overall look to ensure it’s balanced and symmetrical.
  2. Once the arch is complete, secure the ends of the strip or fishing line to the hooks or anchors, using cello tape or balloon clips to prevent the balloons from slipping.
  3. If desired, add additional decorations such as ribbons, flowers, or greenery to enhance the arch.
  4. Finally, hang or display the balloon arch at your chosen location using the hooks or anchors.
