Blow up your balloons in assorted sizes. No helium is required so use your mouth or a balloon pump! Tip: If you do this in advance, keep all the balloons in a garbage bag until you’re ready to assemble.
Begin inserting the larger balloons into the decorating strip, skipping every other hole and alternating which side you put them in. Tip: mix and match patterns and colors throughout.
Leave some length of the decorating strip at the end and attach your arch to your command hooks.
Once you complete the size you need, go back to add smaller balloons into the arch with double sided tape or in those holes you had originally skipped.
Snip stars from the decorating strip and use double sided tape to add the stars to the balloons.
