Then insert 6 regular size balloons onto the balloon tape (two balloons in one hole, one left and one right)

Next, insert the jumbo size balloon in it's own hole

After that, continue with inserting balloons (one balloon in one hole) with the left-right-left-right pattern until you reach the length you need (DO NOT insert the jumbo size balloon as the first balloon as the balloon won't stand stable)

Step 2.1

Insert the Large (16"/40cm) balloons in the following three points to make a perfect shape of your balloon garland.

Step 2.2

To create a curve, you need to skip one or two holes to allow the balloon garland to bend

Balloon string method allow you to create professional look, however, you may need a bit of practice at the beginning when you wrap the string over balloon clusters.

Both methods are great in creating a DIY Balloon Garland. It's up to you to decide which method works better for your event.
