Hi! Jessica here from The Confetti Bar, the coolest confetti shop on the block, where we believe happiness should be celebrated! As you can imagine, I love parties and party crafts. Especially inexpensive, easy ones.

It’s no surprise that confetti balloons are one of my favorite party decor items, but let’s be real: stuffing balloons with confetti should be an Olympic sport!

So why not add confetti to the outside of a balloon, where it can really shine? And I’ve got the 411 on how to do just that! You’ll love this confetti balloons DIY.

Gather These Supplies

The confetti balloons DIY concept here is super simple: just add a little Mod Podge to the bottom of your balloon, sprinkle on some confetti, and let dry.

BUT be careful — in order for the balloon to still float (if you’re using helium), you only need a super light sprinkling of confetti! If you add too much, it will be too heavy, so a light dusting is best.

But want to know the good news? Even if you go a little overboard with the confetti and your balloon ends up being too heavy, you can still let them roam on the floor for festive ambience.

Or you can hang them upside down from the ceiling like a type of confetti balloon chandelier (lemons into lemonade and all that jazz. No confetti balloon wasted)!

These confetti balloons are so fun and pretty to look at! And just imagine the different balloon/confetti color combos you can dream up.
