What Is A Balloon Tree Column
A balloon tree column is a column made out of balloons to look like a tree.
Steps To Make A Tree Out Of Balloons

- Inflate Balloons

- Make Party Balls
- Attach Party Balls To Each Other
- Attach Party Balls To Columns
- Attach Balloon Apples (Optional)
1. Gather All Of Your Ingredients
Column stand or recycled lampstand: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077GJ6W13?tag=funw0d-20
Hand pump or balloon inflator: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B006IBAK5U?tag=funw0d-20 or https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LX0JZ94?tag=funw0d-20
(32) 11” brown balloons
(16) 11” green balloons
(24) 5” green balloons
(16) 11” lime green balloons
(24) 5” lime green balloons
(10) 260 green balloons
2. Inflate Balloons
Inflate all of your brown balloons, sized to 8″, and make them into quads. If you need more information on how to size a balloon, check out my post 3 Ways To Size A Balloon here. If you need more information on how to make a balloon quad, check out my post How To Make A Balloon Quad here.
3. Attach To Balloon Stand
First, we are going to start off by making some brown balloon columns on a stand. You definitely want to use a balloon stand for these because they are going to get top-heavy. If you need information on using a stand check out my post Balloon Column Stands here.
4. Make Party Balls
Next, we are going to make some party balls. If you need further instructions on how to make a party ball, check out my post How To Make A Party Ball here. Typically when making a party ball you would want all of your balloons sized the same but for a balloon tree that isn’t necessary. Just inflate your balloons to random sizes as you go. This will help the tree look better.
I like to use two different colors of green when making a balloon tree because I think it looks better. For this one, I used a standard green and then a lime green. The bigger you want your finished tree the more party balls you are going to need.
5. Attach Party Balls To Each Other
Attach a party ball to the end of a 260 balloon, and attach another party ball to the other end of the 260. Check out my post on types of balloons here. Continue to attach all of your party balls to the ends of the 260s until all of your party balls are in pairs.
6. Attach Party Balls To Columns
Attach the party ball pairs to the columns by wrapping them around.
7. Attach Balloon Apples (optional)
This step is optional but you could add some balloon apples if you wanted. For more information on how to make a balloon apple check out my post How To Make A Balloon Apple here.
