Balloon Weights


Making your own balloon weights allows you to customize the look of them. You can choose the design and the colors to match the event.


  • jelly molds
  • Plaster of Paris
  • paints (optional)
  • strong wire


Mix your Plaster of Paris and pour it into your molds. Your molds need to be flexible in order to get the plaster back out again.

Just before it sets, place a piece of wire (bent into a "U" shape), into the center. This is the hook you will tie your balloons to.

Once it is solid, paint it with pretty colors. A bunch of balloons look great on these.
