How to make Balloon Palm Trees

3 ft Tabletop Palm Tree

7 ft Standing Palm Tree

The technique for making these balloon palm trees are the same.  The difference comes with the sizing of the balloons and a slight change when making the palm leaves. Read the instruction for the tabletop palm first, then read the instructions for the 7 ft palm further down on this page.
Table Top Balloon Palm Tree Instructions
 

You will need:

29 - 5" Yellow Balloons
4 - 5" Brown Balloons
8- 260Q Green Balloon (a 260 is a long thin balloon)
Plastic Balloon Inflator

 

 

Sizing Balloons

It is important that all the balloons are blown up to the stated  size. An easy way to size the balloons is to make a template. Cut a round hole in a piece of poster, foam board or a box the size you want the balloons to be, and when inflating pass the balloon through the hole. You will need to make templates for circles 5 inches, 4 1/2 inches, 4 inches, 3 1/2 inches, 3 inches, 2 1/2 inches and 2 inches.

Step 1.

Inflate two yellow balloons and size them to 5 inches. Tie together at the neck.  Repeat with two more yellow balloons.

 

 

Step 2:

Twist the balloon pairs together at the necks to create a cluster of four balloons. 

Step 3:

Repeat steps 1 & 2 and make six more clusters of yellow balloons, but with each new cluster reduce the size by 1/2" (4 1/2", 4", 3 1/2", 3", 2 1/2", and 2"). Create a template for each size.

Step 4:

Now make a cluster of brown balloon (coconuts), size to 3 inches.

 

Step 5:

Take the largest cluster of yellow balloons (5 inch size) and tie a balloon weight (uninflated balloon with 1/4 cup of water or sand) to the underside of the cluster center

Step 6:

Take one of the green 260Q balloons (long balloon) and tie one end securely to the center of the cluster.

 

Step 7:

Holding the 260 upright, add the 4 1/2 inch cluster of yellow balloons on top of the 5 inch cluster. Stagger the layers of balloons so that the balloons you are adding nestle into the gap in the previous cluster.

Secure the top cluster to the bottom cluster by pulling the 260 down between the balloon and go under one of the balloons in the previous cluster. Pull the 260 back up to the center and pull it snugly to hold the clusters together.

Step 8:

Continue adding clusters of yellow balloons from largest to smallest, wrapping the 260 around a balloon in the previous cluster each time and keeping it pulled in tight. After the last cluster of yellow balloons add the cluster of brown balloons (the coconuts).

Step 9:

Making the "fronds" (palm leaves).

Inflate 6 of the green 260's (a 260 is the long thin balloon), leaving about 2 inches uninflated. Before you tie the balloon, measure about 2 inches from the neck (opening) and pinch the balloon there, letting out the air and tying it off so that there is about 2 inches left hanging.

Holding all 6 of the inflated 260's together, pinch and twist them together at the center. Take an uninflated 260 and tie it around the bunch at the twist. This will hold the "fronds" together securely, as well as giving you a way to tie the fronds to the top of the tree.


Standing 7 ft Palm Tree

You will need:

  • 48 - 12" Yellow Balloons
  • 4 - 5" Brown Balloons
  • 16- 260Q Green Balloon (a 260 is a long thin balloon)
  • Plastic Balloon Inflator

Step 1. Inflate two yellow balloons and size them to 10 inches. Tie together at the neck.  Repeat with two more yellow balloons.

Step 2: Twist the balloon pairs together at the necks to create a cluster of four balloons. 

Step 3: Repeat steps 1 & 2 and make eleven more clusters of yellow balloons, but with each new cluster reduce the size by 1/2" (9-1/2", 9", 8-1/2", 8", 7-1/2", 7", 6-1/2", 6", 5-1/2", 5", and 4-1/2"). Create a template for each size.

Step 4: Now make a cluster of brown balloon (coconuts), size to 5 inches.

Step 5: Take the largest cluster of yellow balloons (10 inch size) and tie a 3-4 balloon weights (uninflated balloons with 1/4 cup of water or sand) to the underside of the cluster center

Step 6: Take two un-inflated green 260Q balloons (long balloon) and tie the necks together snugly, then tie one end securely to the center of the 10 inch cluster.

Step 7: Holding the 260 upright, add the 9 1/2 inch cluster of yellow balloons on top of the 10 inch cluster. Stagger the layers of balloons so that the balloons you are adding nestle into the gap in the previous cluster.

Secure the top cluster to the bottom cluster by pulling the 260 down between the balloon and go under one of the balloons in the previous cluster. Pull the 260 back up to the center and pull it snugly to hold the clusters together.

Step 8:

Continue adding clusters of yellow balloons from largest to smallest, wrapping the 260 around a balloon in the previous cluster each time and keeping it pulled in tight. After the last cluster of yellow balloons add the cluster of brown balloons (the coconuts).

Step 9: Making the "fronds" (palm leaves).

Inflate 12 of the green 260's (a 260 is the long thin balloon), leaving about 2 inches uninflated. Before you tie the balloon, measure about 2 inches from the neck (opening) and pinch the balloon there, letting out the air and tying it off so that there is about 2 inches left hanging.

Holding all twelve of the inflated 260's together (making sure that all the neck (openings) are on the same side, pinch and twist them all together about 3-4 inches from the neck (openings) side. Take an uninflated 260 and tie it around the bunch at the twist. This will hold the "fronds" together securely, as well as giving you a way to tie the fronds to the top of the tree.
