Valentine DIY – Message in a Balloon

Posted on by Shannon

Today is our last day of Valentine DIYs. And then tomorrow we are finishing off the week with a bunch of fun printables to help you make this the easiest (and cutest!) Valentine’s Day!

Without further adieu – the Message in a Balloon!


That’s all!

1. Fill up our balloon up with confetti

2. Roll up your message and put it into balloon

3. Blow your balloon up!

4. Then give it to you whomever you like to pop and read the message!

I found it cool that when you shook up the balloon, the confetti would stick to the side. And it looks even cooler when you put it against a window.

I gave the balloon to Keaton to play with and to take some photos – do you know how hard it is to take a picture of a kid holding a balloon??? Sorry about the fuzziness!

Right after this photo was taken, the balloon popped unexpectedly.  But Keaton loved it! Not only was he showered with heart confetti, he got a little message that he wanted me to read to him!

Out of all the DIYs this week – the Heart Surprise, the Confetti Bag, the Heart Pancakes and the Message in a Balloon – which one(s) would you try?

    Loved all the ideas this week but I think the Heart Surprise was my favourite and one I’ll try. I might just do confetti in balloons and forgo the love note since there’s something so unsettling to me about balloons popping!

      Haha, he had no idea what was going on when I was making these things. And honestly, trying to get a picture of him standing still with that balloon was torture!!!

    Love that little “mailbox” Valentine, so cute! P.S. Hoopla is officially award-winning… check out my NofW post today for details! Xo

  10. Should I use helium to inflate the balloon just so it floats or should I just blow it up by mouth?

  11. whoa you’ve got a wonderful idea ! I will do that for our 2years anniversary, it is so cute.
