DIY New Years 2018 Balloons!

It's my final blog post of the year and I'm going out with a pop, clink, and a fizz with these 2018 New Years balloons, complete with a champagne balloon weight! Because really, what more do you need to celebrate NYE than a balloon and a bottle of bubbly? At least, for me that sounds like a party! 

These balloons would be fun to make whether you're staying home, heading to a friend's to celebrate, or throwing a big party. Whip up a bunch of them to use as decorations or give out to guests!

These festive balloons just require confetti and colorful paper. I used a few vibrant colors from my favorite ASTROBRIGHTS® cardstock assortment and cut out the numbers using my Cricut Explore Air 2.

How to Make New Years Eve 2018 Balloons


1. Cut out numbers from different colors of cardstock using a cutting machine, or by freehand cutting them. I used a Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut out my numbers - here is my 2018 balloon numbers template for you to use if you like!

2. Fill a clear balloon with confetti (a small funnel helps with this). Inflate the balloon with helium and tie with curling ribbon. Tie the other end to a small bottle of champagne as a festive alternative to a balloon weight! I found the mini La Marca prosecco bottles at my local Target.

3. Use double-sided tape to add the numbers to the curling ribbon.

I love these mini individual prosecco bottles, but you could always tie your balloon to a full-sized bottle of bubbly as well!

I'll be back in January crafting up a storm here on Design Improvised. In the meantime, I hope you all have a very Happy New Year!
