How to put your Elf in a Balloon

We’re certain putting an elf inside a balloon was likely not at the top of your list of things to do for 2018—however this is such a fun way to present your elves, and it’s not actually too complicated to do. We’re here to show you step-by-step how to put your elf inside a balloon.


Step 1

Gather your supplies:

- Your favorite elf

- A regular balloon (10-12”)


Step 2

Fold your elf in half. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be perfect.


Step 3

While your elf is folded in half, use both hands to carefully stretch the balloon neck and opening.

Step 4

Starting at the bottom folded portion of your elf, stretch the balloon over the elf. Slowly work your way up the body little by little, pulling the neck and opening of the balloon up around your folded elf.

Step 5

Now that your elf is completely encapsulated within the balloon, blow up the balloon and tie off the end.

Step 6

With your elf inside the inflated balloon, use the string included in your Elf Made Easy kit to tie on the “please help me” sign. Now the fun part…wait until your kids see this!
