3 balloons for each cluster
1. Blow up two balloons and tie together.
2. Blow up a third balloon and tie to the first pair. Now you have a cluster of three that can be used in many different
ways. Hang them from your chandelier, on the swags of your table cloth,
from your drapes, or just space them on the walls around your room.
Cluster so that they hang out from the middle of cluster.
& Curling Ribbon added to Balloon Clusters
Several Balloon Clusters
3 Rolls of Crepe Paper
1. Place the ends of all crepe rolls together. Slip about 20'' of crepe down between
Balloon Cluster. (Do not cut)
2. Hang cluster from a chandelier, or pin to curtain, etc.
3. If you want to drape crepe from one cluster to another, follow Balloon Clusters
instructions to make as many clusters as you need and hang them around the room.
4. Holding the crepe rolls in your hand begin twisting crepe as you walk toward the second
cluster. Bring crepe up to the cluster, measure another 20'' and cut.
5. Slip tail down between balloons. If you want a single cluster, cut the second half of
crepe (measuring from cluster) 20'' long and slide down through balloons.
6. Add Curling Ribbon Cluster
3 Rolls of Crepe Paper
Small Amount of Matching Curling Ribbon
Use all three rolls of crepe. Cut ends
on a slant, and place together, one on top of the other.
Measure 22" and hold mark with your fingers. Measure another 4" and fold crepe
back onto itself.
Keep crepe flat and line up the edges of the 4"
length evenly with the edges of the 22" length.
Fold crepe back on itself again.
Continue to fold
4" lengths back and forth until you have six layers of 4" loops.
Cut ends the same length as the first three tails of crepe. Tie a piece
of curling ribbon tightly around all layers of crepe 3 1/4" from top of
loops, catching the bottoms of all 4" lengths.
Separate loops by placing your forefinger inside at the top of each loop, use your thumb
and second finger to pinch loop at the bottom and give it a 1/4 twist. Twisting will keep
each loop from sliding back into the one next to it.
separating each group of loops, alternating the colors.
Insert two or three fingers inside each loop and spread apart all the way down to the base
to fluff and smooth each loop. Pin rosettes to the corner of your table cloth, on your curtains or place
in the middle of a balloon cluster. Drape one or two of the tails around balloons and let
the rest hang below rosette.
