Balloon Arch Frame
« on: July 06, 2015, 04:10:07 PM »
Hi I've been asked to make a walk through balloon arch for somebody but I think it's going to need to go onto a frame.

I've not done a arch on a frame before and wondered if anybody could advise me of what the best thing to use for the base at each end is? x

Hi Jade.

Sandi Masori has some instructions on you tube for framed arches. I have got to do a bit of shopping  now, so when I get back I will find the links for you  :D

You could use QLinks, and no frame.

you can buy them pre made...

or if you have poles and bases
buy a length of ali rod and bend it to shape
and push it into the poles taping with gaffer tape to hold...

or you could do a 4 balloon cluster helium filled arch
