How To Make A Balloon Quad / Balloon Cluster


In my last post, I showed you how to make a balloon duplet or tie balloons together. If you missed it you can check it out How To Make A Balloon Duplet here. In this post, I’m going to take it a step further and show you how to make a balloon quad or balloon cluster.

What is A Balloon Quad?

A balloon quad is simply taking two duplets, and twisting them into a quad. Balloon duplets and balloon quads are basic elements of balloon decorating that can save you time and money once mastered.

A balloon quad is a base for a lot of different balloon decorations. Not only is a balloon quad vital to balloon decorating they are also super easy to make.

How To Make A Balloon Quad

To make a balloon quad, start out with four balloons. Typically you would use four balloons the same size but in some cases, I have used different sized balloons. Using two (or more) different-sized balloons, is considered a more advanced technique. We will discuss this in more detail later. For this example, I will be using four balloons of the same size. Two of one color and two of another. Again I will discuss the benefits of this technique in a later post. You will also need a balloon pump, this is my go-to balloon hand pump.

Start out by making two sets of balloon duplets.

Next, twist the two sets of duplets together to make a balloon quad.

That’s it! You are done! I hope this post brought value to your day. If it did, please consider sharing with a friend or on your favorite social media. Thanks For Reading Fun With Balloons!
