Rainbow Sprinkle Wall - Donut Ice Cream Colorful Unicorn Birthday Party DIY - tiffanieanne.com

I am back with another creative way to decorate with these balloons that I’m obsessed with! 
We use them often for decorations, parties, and crafts. 

People mainly purchase these balloons to use for balloon animals (which works great!) but I initially purchased them to decorate my daughter’s 1st birthday, which was Sprinkle Donut themed!

Time to use your hand pump.
This hand pump makes life so much easier!  

HOW LONG SHOULD THE BALLOONS BE?
These are the approximate sizes I used.

 Top Color – Longest Piece25 in Middle Color – Middle Piece22 in Lower Color – Shortest Piece19 inMy best advice is to first blow up your longest piece to your liking and then blow the middle piece to be slightly shorter and see how it looks under the longest piece, and so forth. Here is my toddler helping me frame our rainbow!

It is also good to bend the balloons after blowing them. This helps the balloons maintain its curvy shape on the wall to create a good rainbow.

Use your scotch tape to tape the excess and fold it over the balloon or simply cut the excess with scissors.

Time to get out your gaff tape or double sided tape.

Use enough tape to cover the width of your rainbow. 
ie: the width of my rainbows were approximately 4.5 inches.

 

 

NOTE: The reason why I used gaff tape is because it was the only tape that does not remove paint off my wall AND the balloons sticked on the wall for weeks!

I used gaff tape when I worked in television production, and it’s the best!
