If you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen this colorful snowflake balloon tutorial, but I just had to share it here too! I love the gold letter balloons that are super popular right now, but sometimes I want a color other than gold (shocking, I know!). With a little paint and your vinyl cutter you can easily transform gold foil balloons into any color with any design on them! I went with all the colors and a few white snowflakes for this colorful holiday party, but use your imagination and customize them however you like!


DIY colorful Snowflake BalloonsBegin by removing the balloons from the package and paint the front of all the letters with your acrylic paint. You may need to do two coats of paint to fully cover the gold.
While you are waiting for the paint to dry, you can begin to cut out your vinyl snowflakes. You can save the below snowflake image to upload into the cutting software of your choice and then scale down to 2″ and 1″ snowflakes. Cut 2-3 dozen out of your vinyl.DIY colorful Snowflake BalloonsDIY colorful Snowflake BalloonsDIY colorful Snowflake BalloonsOnce the balloons are dry, use the included straw to inflate the balloons. Once inflated, peel off the snowflakes and stick them to the balloons like stickers to create your own snowflake covered balloons. You can go very heavy handed or add a few here and there like I did. It’s up to you!DIY colorful Snowflake BalloonsString them up with fishing line or baker’s twine and they are ready for your holiday party!

The best thing about this tutorial is that you can easily change up the phrase, colors, and vinyl decal to match the theme of any party. You could even paint the balloons in red and white stripes to look like candy canes!Now who’s ready to throw that holiday party with your own colorful snowflake DIY balloon decor?!

    Would you paint and sell these balloons at the holiday time?

    Any chance you remember what paint colors you used?

    Do you paint the balloons before you inflate? It seems like the paint wouldn’t appear right if it’s before since the balloon would inflate.

      I did before so that when it was inflated all the nooks and creases were already painted. After and its harder to get in all the spots than before when it is flat.
