I'm so excited to share with you our first ever DIY post! Today, I'm going to show you how to jazz up your balloons using washi tape! The wonderful ladies of Carousel Paper & Co provided all of the pretty washi tapes for this DIY Washi Tape Balloon post. Carousel Paper & Co is a fabulous online packaging and party supply store carrying everything from glittery scalloped garlands (as pictured below) to colourful mini honeycomb balls. Be sure to stop by their Etsy shop to see more of what they have to offer!
Jacky and I wanted to feature a unique + minimalist balloon for our Chic Fete styled shoot. We decided to use Carousel Paper's gold scalloped garland as our tassel and to incorporate their washi tape by cutting it into even strips, layering them on top of another to make a + sign and sticking them onto the balloon in a staggered pattern to create this fun Giant Washi Tape Balloon which was perfect for our Kate Spade inspired styled shoot.
And... TA-DAA!! It's as easy as that! My daughter had so much fun customizing her balloons with washi tape. It definitely made for a fun activity, and something any child can do for their special day.
Turn our idea into something more! Give these different styles and patterns a try:
We would love to see what you come up with! Be sure to hashtag #chicfetediy to share your creative balloons with us!
