What Are Sturdy Balloon Bubbles

Sturdy balloon bubbles are small bubbles of air in a long skinny balloon, secured with a knot between each bubble so they can’t untwist.

Why Would I Need Sturdy Balloon Bubbles

There are several reasons why you might need to use a sturdy balloon bubble method. If you are doing balloon bubbles in anything that is going to be touched by a non-balloon professional. Another reason to use the sturdy balloon method would be if your design is going to be in a windy location.

Sturdy balloon bubbles help prevent unwanted untwisting however, it should be noted that this method should not be used as standard practice when making balloon bubbles because it takes far more time than twisting alone. If a particular job will require the use of this sturdy balloon bubble method make sure you take that into account when pricing your job or scheduling your time.

I use this particular method mostly when children would like to handle a particular design.

1. Gather All Your Ingredients

  • 260 or 160 balloon (if you need information about different balloon types, check out my post on Balloons Types here)
  • Hand pump found on Amazon here

2. Inflate 260, Deflate

Using the balloon pump, inflate the 260 balloon all of the way and then let all the air out. The reason for this is to stretch out the balloon.

3. Inflate, Deflate & Tie

Using the balloon pump, inflate the 260 balloon again and then let out most of the air. Push all of the air out except for the amount you want for the size of your bubble.

Go slow with this one. If you let out too much air you will have to pump the balloon up again. When you are satisfied with the size of your bubble, tie a know in the balloon.
