Tie A Knot In The Neck Of The Balloon

Tie a knot in the neck of the balloon. If you need help or a reminder on How To Tie A Balloon, check out my post here. I like to pull the knot down a little.

Push The Knot Through Your Balloon

Next, you’re going to push the knot through your balloon and catch it on the other side with your fingers (if you have poky fingernails then you might need to trim them because they could pop your balloon). This step can be a little tricky so you might need to practice.

Twist And Attach Green Balloon

Then while holding the knot you want to twist it, giving it a couple of good twists. Then attach your green balloon.
