How far in advance can I make an arch? I'm thinking of doing this at our house for my daughter's first birthday but want to see if I can do it a day or two before.

LovelyDee Brighteyes Air pump would be best. Balloons only last 8-10 hours with helium unless you put Hi-Float in them which will make them last about 48 hours.
Chesney M (1 year ago)
LovelyDee Brighteyes Air pump is fine, helium would make the balloons float a little bit upwards rather than hang so I would suggest just using regular air. Hope that helps!
LovelyDee Brighteyes (1 year ago)
The House That Lars Built good day. Is helium required or the airpump is fine? How many hours wld you estimate to do this size you did?

We’ve done them as much as a week in advance. Looked just as good as the day of. It was on the inside of course, In a building at church where there was no traffic or any hands touching or messing with it.

I am wanting to do a ballon garland for my wedding but my venue is strict in not adhering anything to their walls. What could I do to have the garland stand on its own?

I’ve done arches like this with just Balloons and Balloon string. I feel like the chicken wire and glue gun was 100% unnecessary.

How long would you say it takes between filling up the balloons and setting it all up?

You can make this without chicken wire and low temp glue gun. This method is ghetto.

Dumb question: don’t the balloons burst due to the chicken wire?
Rene' Yeung (11 months ago)
so beautiful. Are you able to remove the balloons to reuse the chicken wire or just better to buy another one for the next time?

Love this so much more than the traditional balloon arch. This has more of an organic flow to it.

How does the balloons not pop or melt using a hot glue gun
Gabriela Herrera (1 year ago)
Hi Lars! This is absolutely beautiful I love it! I would like to try a similar design, but I’m in a bit of a pickle. I rented a venue and they explicitly don’t allow anything adhered to the walls. Have you tried blowing up half of the top balloons to allow for them to float?? And maybe using fixing yarn to tie the balloons together? Hope this can be successfully be done.

How can i attach the chicken wire to the brick outside my house for a backyard event? Would nails work?
Bryan Kidd (1 year ago)
Beautiful! Where did you find the balloons you used? I’m having trouble finding the different varieties and shades of colors in party/craft stores, and I’m a little hesitant to order the balloons online. And suggestions? Thanks!

Aoife Superstar (1 year ago)
are the balloons not gonna pop when applied with the glue stick/glue gun?
you can only use a low temperature glue gun. A hot temperature glue gun will make it pop.

Cie Oflove (1 year ago)
Great video is there a different material other then chicken wire you would suggest? Also you mentioned $170 worth of balloons I assume via packets of balloons so we talking about over 100 packets of balloons? Again love love love love love this going to do something like this for my sons and I are both graduating this year thank you for sharing this video
I've also created the arch using butcher paper and twisting it so that it's tighter and stronger. You could try that! Just make sure it's securely attached. Yes, I bought packs of 20 and fifty. Because I used various colors I didn't need a pack of 100. Hope that helps!

It looks lovely AND finally I found a video that was short enough and istructions were very clear!
Curious Explorer (1 year ago)
The arch is really beautiful. How long did it take you to make the whole thing?i 'm thinking of making an arch for a birthday.
it took a couple of friends and I about 2 hours to blow up the balloons, and then about 3-4 hours to install it.
Valerie Wilkins (1 year ago)
Beautiful...my question is this how is the chicken wire shaped? Is it wrapped to form a cylinder or what
Hi Valerie, the chicken wire comes in a cylinder form at the hardware store, but you unwrap it like a ribbon to form it into any shape you want! Does that answer the question?
Molee Tauo (1 year ago)
Wow just wow thank you so much 😍😍😍
Momma Bear (1 year ago)

diamond sapphire I was wondering the same thing. It's come over so quickly in the video, I didn't quite catch it
Catherine Benner (1 year ago)
How far in advance can the balloons be inflated and still be appropriate for an event? We have a 6:30 a.m. setup, so I'm wondering (hoping!!) we could do some of the work the evening before. Thanks Much!
of course!
Catherine Benner (1 year ago)
Thank you!
oh yeah! I'd blow up the balloons the night before!
Larly (1 year ago)
how do they not pop with the glue and the chicken wire and the tape!!?
yes! just make sure everything is attached super well. I might consider using gaffer tape instead of the glue gun!
Larly (1 year ago)
I have ONE more question, so sorry - I want them outside my house from the windows... still generic?!
nope! just generic!
Larly (1 year ago)
no special balloons? thickness wise? amazing thanks!
if it's a low temperature glue gun it should be fin! and just make sure the ends of the chicken wire are not near the balloons. then you're all set!
1kcee (1 year ago)
Just made this last night, but the lo-temp glue gun still seems to pop the balloons! What brand is yours and any tips on how to prevent this?

I have made your heart arch for my parties its just so incredible. Thank you so much for posting this!!! I did mine mostly by eye and it wasn't nearly as easy as this will be!!!
oh! This is wonderful news to hear. Thanks so much for sharing!
blueeyes (1 year ago)
Hello The House That Lars Built. I loved the Arch you made. I was just wondering where can i find chicken wire with a big roll the one you are showing on youtube? I will be appreciate a lot. I have project to do and i saw this version of the arch and i liked it so much. thank you
blueeyes (1 year ago)
thank you so much
I found it at the hardware store. They sell it in bulk!
Jessica Martínez (1 year ago)
Beautiful project!! I just love it!!!, i want to make this ballon arch for my baby's first birthday party next month. Can i use liquid silicone instead of low temperature glue gun? Thank you!
I don't know! I haven't tried it. But you can definitely use tape. I'd try gaffer tape. It's super sturdy!
Patricia Sansón (1 year ago)
Beatiful. Buenos días cómo se llama la malla que utiliza y no se observa bien en el video cómo se colocan los globos para que no se revienten en la malla? Gracias
I'm so sorry! I'm not fully understanding your question.
jessicawoods2009 (1 year ago)
Hello, is it possible to build this and transport it the day of to the location? Also, in the comments you mentioned tying the balloons right are you referring to the knot in the balloon?
Yes, just make sure the knots are super tightly knotted. I've never tried to build and transport it the day of the location, but I think it could work.
Rawnak Ahmed (1 year ago)
Where did you add the fish line??
any string or just tape (gaffer tape is strong and doesn't take off paint" should work as well.
Rawnak Ahmed (1 year ago)
Ohh ok, thanks. Is there anything I can use to substitute the fishing line? . This so so gorgeous and I want to make a simple arch for my son's 1st birthday.. I hope I'll do a good job lol
from the chicken wire to nails and temporary hooks on the wall or window bars.
Cassandra Amore (1 year ago)
how many ballons did you have
avision20 (1 year ago)
How long ahead can I inflate the balloons with an electric balloon pump
I'd recommend minimum one day and make sure they are tied super tightly.
Jennifer Corey (1 year ago)
What would you charge for something like this? How much time does it take to assemble?
I don't take on custom jobs and depending on the size it can take between 1-2 hours to blow up the balloons and 2-4 hours to put together. Good luck!
Nayara R Medeiros (1 year ago)
Você usou cola quente para grudar os balões?
isso! obrigada vc!
Nayara R Medeiros (1 year ago)
Fita adesiva, rs... Obrigada!
tambem, pode usar duck tape. Boa sorte!
Nayara R Medeiros (1 year ago)
Não conheço essa cola, por isso perguntei porque achei estranho. Obrigada por me responder. Gostei do seu canal!
Usei cola frio para grudar os baloes. Nao pode usar cola quente, so frio.
Tayla B (1 year ago)
Beautiful! Could you recommend something to attach this to the wall so it stays put if I did it by threading the balloon necks through thread instead of using the chicken wire? Thanks! Xx
I used command strips and hooks to temporarily attach to a wall!
Kassandra Machado (2 years ago)
do you think it looks better with matte balloons? and do you know where I can find them?
that sounds awesome! hope it works out well!
Kassandra Machado (2 years ago)
Thank You so much!! I will be making it for my sisters baby shower!!!
you can find them at your local party store or Amazon like these http://amzn.to/2sHlkAD
personally, I love the mix of matte, pearl, clear, but it's a personal choice :)

Awesome! Soooo beautiful! Can you share tips on how to deal with the sharp edges of the chicken wire (where I cut it) so they do not pop my balloons?
fold the chicken wire into itself so that it doesn't poke out. Or add a piece of duck tape to cover the edges. Good luck!
beykaylene (2 years ago)

Hi....should we mix the pearlized and normal baloons??? Did you only use pearlized baloons ? What sizes did you use?
I used a mix of many balloons. Pearl and normal and clear! Have fun with it!

Super pretty.. i know this has nothing to do with your video but it's the 3rd time i hear it on youtube today so i thought i'd mention it.. VOILA is actually pronounced VOOAH-LAH and not WAH-LAH :) (i'm french, i can confirm :3 ...)
Denell German (2 years ago)
How do you make sure they don't fly away if we're doing this outside
if the balloons are affixed to a foundation (like the chicken wire) they should be good. Of course, you might have some trouble in rough winds.
Victoria Rodriguez (2 years ago)
How far in advance can I make this ?
you can blow up balloons 1-2 days in advance. Make sure they are tied super tightly. And then I would suggest installing it the day of. good luck!

Hi!! In estimate,how many balloons did you use to make the arch? :)
yes! About 120 for the tutorial and about 200 for the one in the photo.
Thanks Paula ;)
Paula (2 years ago)
She had posted that for the video tutorial, she used 120 balloons. For the still pictures, 200 balloons were used.
Just Go Be Free (2 years ago)
Beautiful work! Big thanks for the tutorial! How far in advance could you create one of these for an outdoor event? Planning on recreating this for a Tropical themed Bridal Shower!
I typically blow up the balloons the night before and install the day of. Make sure the balloons are tied super tightly!
