Pom-Pom Balloons!

These pom-pom balloons just might be my favorite DIY yet. Who would've thought that you could hot glue things onto a balloon without it popping? I figured it was worth a try. :)

Hot glue and balloons may sound like a precarious combination, but I promise you it works. I've made two bunches of these without a single balloon popping…and the results are so fun!

I first made these for our going away party, but was having too much fun at the party to get any good photos of them. So I made another round the other day. It took 15 minutes. Totally worth it for some unexpected decor that you can customize to the colors of your party.

Supplies for Pom-Pom Balloons

  • Helium grade latex balloons - I used clear as I liked being able to look through the balloon and see the pom-poms on the other side, but you could try any color
  • Small pom-poms - I found some fun glitter pom-poms
  • Hot glue - I used it on "low" setting just to be safe!

How to Make Pom-Pom Balloons

It is as simple as putting a small dab of hot glue on a pom-pom and sticking it on the balloon! I used a variety of colors and stuck them on randomly until it was well covered.

These were so easy to make I can see myself making lots of different versions of these for parties down the road.

How cute would these look in red, white, and blue pom-poms for the 4th of July? How else would you improvise on them?

    I absolutely love this idea! I am doing a pink and gold theme for my daughter’s first birthday and I think I am going to get pink balloons and hot glue gold pom poms on them. Thanks again!
