Party balloons have a way of amping up the mood of any venue. If you have a gathering coming up, try this DIY project to create subtly stylish party decorations. With the long weekend coming up and fourth of July just around the corner, you could even mix and match the colors of the balloons and paint to suit the occasion.
This DIY, posted on a blog called A Subtle Revelry, walks you through how to create your own decorative balloons. The blogger uses acrylic paint on helium balloons -- it's a quick and easy process. Balloons can sometimes look too vibrant or childish depending on how they blend with the venue, but this DIY lets you paint them to look sophisticated, perfect for a more mature gathering.
