What a great entrance for your little princess for a birthday party or special event. This can be done with a little planning and I will tell you the secrets to do so.
TOWERS: You will need six feet of pine that is 2″x4″ or 2″x2″ and a 1.5’x1.5’x1″ square for the bottom. You will need balloons and poster board and a 2′ piece of doweling that is no thinner than 1/2″. Attach the square 1.5′ board to the bottom of the 2″x4″x6′ pine board. This needs to be centered evenly to prevent it from toppling over. To the top of the 2″x4″x6′ pine board attach the doweling by drilling a hole to fit the dowel in the 2″x4″x6′ pine board. My suggestion at this time is to paint all of this with a coordinating paint color to the balloons. When these are in your venue you will either use push pins or staples to attach the balloons at the part where they are blown up to the 2″x4″x6′ pine board. Use your poster board to make a funnel that slides down the dowel. Use additional piece of poster board to make a flag that attaches to the top of the dowel.
CHAIN: You will need the long balloons that you will interlink to each other to create the chain. The base is a pile of small balloons that the chain gets attached to. The top is attached to the top of two towers.
PATH: As seen we used a roll of white paper that is about 12′ and created a cobblestone pattern on it. We used a sharpie marker and a cement path mold and traced around the “stones”. We embellished it with some natural marks with the sharpie marker.
There you have it – a little work and around a hundred dollars will make the perfect grand entrance for your little one. I had thought about adding some small pots of real growing grass around to give a unique look but stayed with this design.
