Learn to inflate double helium balloons to create stunning party decorations
You might have seen them at birthdays, weddings or other parties and events – a clear outer balloon with another balloon inside. It is not as complicated as it looks and with a disposable helium canister you can create interesting and unexpected decorations without using a professional decorator.
1 – Choose two latex balloons – for best results, use a diamond clear one for the outside and a coloured one inside. You can create different effects using a combination of plain and printed balloons to suit the occasion.
2 – Take a straw, chopstick or any similar object and insert into the inner balloon. Roll it on the stick and feed it into the clear one, but leave the neck sticking out.
3 – Slide both balloon necks over the helium cannister‘s nozzle and inflate to about 9 inches. Remove the balloon from the valve and tie off the inner balloon only.
4 – Push the knot over to the side and place the neck of the outer balloon over helium tank’s nozzle. Inflate to about 11 inches. Make a strong knot.
