Day 297: Balloon Jewlery

If you've been following my blog, you have seen a lot of different things that can be made from balloons.
For the most part the balloons are inflated and twisted into shapes, but there are a lot of things that can be made from un-inflated balloons as well.

Here is a selection of bracelets made from un-inflated balloon scraps.
I save my scraps anyway, because I often find uses for them when I'm building designs for people... but I accumulate a lot of scraps in a short amount of time.

When I sat down to start cutting the scraps into the proper lengths to make these bracelets I had a plastic grocery bag filled completely with scraps of all different colors... easily 3-4 pounds of balloon scraps.

This weekend is Labor Day weekend, and there is a local festival that I twist at every year. Last year I brought a dozen or so of these to the festival and they were a big hit. I wanted to bring a lot more this time to see if I can start a cool new fashion trend in the area.

I'll let you know how it goes.

See you tomorrow.


  1. how do you make those?

  2. They are made from stringing balloon scraps onto a 160 as the wrist band.
    Very easy and quite popular at some events.
