Updated on September 28, 2014

Halloween Decorating

Halloween is fast approaching. Haunted houses start to pop up along the roadside. People gather to show off their costumes and party time begins. If you want a quick and easy way to decorate, you should consider balloon art. The materials are easily bendable and cheap, which means they are a great medium for sculpting just about anything. You only need a few basic supplies to start your own balloon art. It may take some practice, but anybody can do it. With a little practice, you will be scaring all of the kids in your neighborhood and wowing your guests. Check out these designs below.

Balloon History

From a preface written by John Shirley, appearing in "One balloon animals; the rubber jungle / Roger's rubber jungle" by Roger Siegel.

The art of twisting and sculpturing balloons probably began sometime around 1920 but did not become popular until the advent of the skinny balloons after World War II.

The balloon dog was one of the first balloon sculptures to be created. It is also one of the easiest. Balloon sculptures have changed in size and complexity over the years. You can find some amazing balloon sculptures online. Balloon clothing have become the rage in Japan, who often dabbles in the avant garde.
