There are many ways to build a balloon arch, here are four methods explaining how to.

 

Method 1

Requires a frame and no helium. Unfortunately, at this time Bargain Balloons does not sell or are able to ship frames. Please check your local suppliers and stores for frames. We have also included a video link on how to make a basic balloon arch without helium.

Method 2 

can be made with or without helium, two weights, and a fishing line. We have also included a video link on how to make a basic balloon arch with helium.

Method 3

Requires helium (except where you can hang from the ceiling) and a balloon arch decorating strip.  You can find a link to the product below. This product has pre-punched holes along a plastic strip.  You insert the balloons into the holes and an arch quickly comes together. This method avoids the need to tie balloons to a fishing line and because the holes are perfectly spaced you get a consistent look for your arch in a fraction of the time.

Method 4 

This method requires Quick Link balloons. These balloons can be tied at both ends, therefore, allowing the balloons to be tied together creating an arch. With sixteen 12-inch Quick Links balloons, you can make a simple 8 x 10 foot arch.

Basic Arch Calculations

  • Arch is wider than it is tall (Height + Width = Approximate Length)
  • Arch is wider than it is tall (Height + Width = Approximate Length)
  • Arch is taller than it is wide (2 x Height) + Width = Approximate Length)

 

Required number of balloon per foot.

  • 5-inch balloons = 12 per foot (5-inch balloons will not float with helium)
  • 9-inch balloons = 8 per foot
  • 11-12-inch balloons = 6 per foot
  • 14-inch balloons = 4 per foot
  • 16-inch balloons = 4 per foot
