I made this cute pumpkin garland for Halloween...
from only balloons, green paper, and bakers twine...
not only simple, but cheap too!
I resized the leaf template from HERE
then added folds to give more 3D effect
inflate the balloons to the same size
(tip blow balloons up inside a small bowl each time and then they will be the same size)
and tie at regular intervals to the divine twine
cellotape the leaf onto the balloon
(no one will see the tape, I promise)
cut a pipe cleaner in half
the fold the half in half
wrap each end around a dowl or pencil
twist onto neck of balloon
and that's all there is to it!
