Calling all party animals! Turn a basic balloon into a DIY dog decoration for your next pet party. Watch the video below to get the how-to.


  • Free printables
  • Scissors
  • Balloons (in the color of your choice)
  • Balloon pump (or helium tank)
  • Glue stick (or tape)
  • Ribbon
  • Permanent marker
  • Painter’s tape
  • Party hats (optional)


Step 1: Cut out free printables.

Step 2: Using a balloon pump (or helium tank), blow up your first balloon and tie off at the end.

Step 3: To make a leash, cut a long piece of ribbon and tie around the bottom of your balloon.

Step 4: After you’ve cut out your collar, fold the white tabs down then tape the two ends together to form a circle. Thread the ribbon through the collar, then tape both tabs to the balloon. Don’t forget to give your dog a name!

Step 5: Use your glue stick to glue the eyes, nose, mouth and ears onto the balloon to form a face.

Step 6: Repeat steps 1-5 to make a whole pack of pups.
