For a young girl fashion doesn’t play that big of a role in life. It’s a right of passage to play around with mismatched garments, combine strange colors together in an outfit, or to just wear silly things in her hair. For a young girl, if it’s fun, colorful and unusual, it’s right up her alley! That’s why most any little girl will absolutely love a balloon bracelet. It doesn’t take any special skills to make the bracelet and the little girl can wear it with many different outfits.
It’s cheap and easy to make an assortment of balloon bracelets, each one with a different theme. Make a bracelet that combines many colors or one that features just one color of balloons. Combine holiday colors, like red, white and blue, red and green, or black and orange to make balloon bracelets for nearly any occasion.
Start with a hair tie that’s a little too large for the girl’s wrist. This is important because, after the balloons are added, the bracelet will be much tighter. The hair tie should be one that’s small in diameter; the type that’s about the diameter of a rubber band. Big, fluffy hair ties are not ideal for making balloon bracelets.
The type of balloons you should use for the bracelets are ones that blow up to be large and round. Although you can make the bracelet with balloons that are cylindrical shaped when blown up the round balloons give the bracelet a fuller look.
Tie the balloons onto the hair tie so that the tie is centered in the middle of the balloon. After tying on the second one, turn it so that the mouthpiece of the balloon faces a different way than the first balloon. Tie on a third balloon, position the mouthpiece on a different side of the hair tie, and continue in this manner until you’ve covered the entire hair tie with the balloons. Before calling it quits stretch the hair tie and look to see if there are any bare areas between balloons. If so, add more balloons.
The cute and colorful balloon bracelets are adorable for any little girl to wear any time of the year. They’re also fabulous as party favors for a little girl’s birthday. They’re so easy to make that most young girls will need no assistance to make them.
