DIY Balloon Garland Christmas Tree Instructions

First up, you’ll need to make a balloon garland.

I suggest putting more of the bigger balloons toward the bottom and one larger gold one toward the top (as the star, of course!).

Next place your lamp in place. And don’t forget to take the lampshade off!

Take the bottom of your balloon garland strip, thread a piece of string through one of the bottom holes and attach it to the lamp.

Then gently wrap the balloon garland around the lamp. Just like when you hang balloon garlands, you’ll want to manipulate the balloons a bit to make it look right!

One you get it wrapped all around attach the top of the tree to the top of the lamp the same way you did with the bottom. Loop the string through the ballon tape, create a loop and attach it to the top of the lamp.

After it’s all connected, you can twist and move the balloons so they form more of “tree” formation. Then add in some filler balloons using the glue dots!

Fill out the bottom or even out sides with these balloons. You can also add a few to hide the lamp if you need to!
