Christine from Pure Joy Events made these cute Halloween pumpkin balloons for her recent Halloween party, and now she’s sharing how she did it (with a free pumpkin template from Paper Glitter). Thanks, Christine. What a perfect Halloween party decoration!
- Paper Glitter’s pumpkin balloon template
- 12″ round orange balloon
- 10mm bright yellow washi tape
- 8.5″ x 11″ 65 lb to 100 lb white cardstock
- double-sided tape
- sticker machine (optional)
Tip: For best results, make 1 to 2 days before the event.
Step 1: Download and print Paper Glitter’s pumpkin balloon template on cardstock. (You can also download the ghost balloon template and cat balloon template here too.)
Step 2: Cut around all pieces except for the stem and apply double-sided tape to the back, or feed them through a sticker maker.
Step 3: Cut out all pieces.
Step 4: Fold along the dotted lines on the stem, then apply double-side tape to the white tab.
Step 5: Inflate the balloon with air. Tip: For size, insert the balloon into an 8 quart stockpot until it fits snuggly inside before tying the neck.
Step 6: With the neck of the balloon facing up, apply all pieces to the balloon, using the pumpkin picture from the template as a reference.
Step 7: Cut out square pieces of the washi tape and apply along the sides of the balloon, again using this picture as a reference.
We’ve also included the ghost balloon template and cat balloon template so you can make all three!
Awesome, Christine! I love how easy this was to make and they’re soooo cute!
