The Best Way to Tie Up 100 Balloons
Make sure your balloons don't fly away. (balloons image by miscallito from

Balloons are a great accessory for any birthday party, no matter the age of the person who's celebrating. If you're planning to have a lot of balloons, they should be tied together to prevent them from floating away. There is a special way to tie the balloons to ensure they are properly secure. One important tip: If you're picking the balloons up rather than inflating them at home, make several trips. One hundred balloons will block your view in the car, making driving a hazard. Taking a few small trips to get the decorations will ensure you're safe while transporting the balloons.

  1. 1

    Separate the balloons into groups of 10. This should be done inside, so if any balloons start to float away, you can easily grab them.

  2. 2

    Slide the balloon weight's loop onto the end of the first 10 balloon strings. A loop will be attached to the weight, allowing it to be attached to the balloon strings.

  3. 3

    Hold onto the last third of the balloon strings tightly with your nondominant hand, while your dominant hand holds onto the balloon string ends.

  4. 4

    Fold the bottom of the balloon strings up about 6 inches so the weight falls to the middle of the fold. Crisscross the folded bottom balloon strings with the top balloon strings to create a hole in the middle. Wrap the bottom strings around the top strings and pull the bottom strings through the middle hole. This will form a knot with the weight hanging in the middle of it. Pull tightly on the bottom balloon strings to ensure that the knot is snug.

  5. 5

    Place an extra large plastic bag over the 10 balloons to keep them in place and to prevent tangling.

  6. 6

    Repeat Steps 2 through 5 with the remaining nine sets of balloons.

  7. 7

    Tie all 10 sets of balloons together into one bunch. You can do this tying the balloon ends into a knot (as in Step 4) or by wrapping a rubber band around the ends.
