  1. Inflate a balloon to your desired size, leaving some space at the end. At the end of the balloon, tie a knot to keep the air inside.
  2. Hold the balloon with one hand and use your other hand to create a small bubble at the top of the balloon. Then, twist the bubble to create a knot.
  3. Place the balloon’s tip against the fold under the bubble. Then, twist its tip inside the fold to create another bubble. Make sure that the second bubble is longer than the first. 
  4. Make a pinch twist on the first bubble. After that, insert it into the gap created at the intersection of the loop and the second bubble.  
  5. Next, bring the two ends of the loop together, then fold the middle of the loop inside so that it bends downward 
  6. Create an acute angle and hold the point in your left hand as you use your right hand to emphasize the curve on the top right side of the heart balloon. Then do it again on the side.

How Do You Get Heart-Shaped Balloons To Stick To The Wall?

One of the best ways to get heart-shaped balloons to stick to the wall is to use double-sided tape. 

This tape is designed to be solid and sticky but not overly so, which makes it perfect for attaching balloons to walls without damaging the paint or wallpaper. 

To apply the double-sided tape, cut it into small strips and stick them onto the back of the heart-shaped balloons. 

Once the tape is applied, you can press the balloons onto the wall, which should stick immediately.

“Trying to compromise EXCELLENCE, is like trying to let a little bit of air out of a balloon with a hat pin.”

– Daniel R. Scoggin, Businessman
