Baby Shower Decorations Ideas | Easy Balloon Pacifier
First, lay out your balloon supplies listed above to make your balloon pacifier.
Making The Balloon Pacifier Top
Next, roll up your colored latex balloon tightly and insert it into your clear balloon with the neck of the balloons inside of each other as shown below.
This is an example of how it should appear.
Now, just grab your helium tank to add some magic! Filling just one balloon at a time, you’re going to start with adding helium to the colored inner balloon first.
And then hold the neck of the colored balloon with two fingers while you pull out the neck of the clear balloon to place over the nozzle of your helium tank to fill next.
And now you should have a colored balloon inside of a clear balloon! See it all coming together quickly? You’re looking like a pro already!
Next, pull out the neck of your inner balloon, and tie it around the neck of the outer balloon to seal off both balloons. Set it aside. Hint, it will float to the top of whatever room you’re in, so perhaps put it in a nearby closet until you’re ready for it again. 😉
Making The Balloon Pacifier Handle
Then just take your long, 260 balloon and tie a knot in the end about 2 inches from the bottom of the balloon.
And tie that 2″ section of your 260 balloon around the neck of your double inflated balloons you just set aside. You’re doing great, Mama!
Next, inflate your Geo Blossom balloon. (Isn’t that pretty?)
And, now, thread the 260 balloon through the center of your Geo Blossom balloon.
To make the handle of your pacifier, you can either add air to your 260 balloon with a helium tank, or with a non-helium air pump. (I added air with a non-helium air pump here, but it didn’t float as long as it could have if I chose to add air with my helium tank instead. It did still float nice and high for a couple of hours. So, next time I’ll probably add helium to my pacifier handle instead.)
Then, tie off the end of your 260 balloon with a simple knot.
And thread the end of it up through the center of your Geo Blossom balloon. Be prepared for some squeaky balloon sounds at this step, and keep – pushing – through until the end of it can be grabbed from the top of your Geo Blossom balloon. See picture below.
Finally, you’re going to tie the two ends together to keep your handle nice and secure.
