How Do I Anchor a Flexible Plastic Tube for my Tall Wedding Balloon Centerpiece?

Posted by abncparties on August 2, 2009

We are regularly asked how to secure the flexible plastic tubes to a base to make a tall air filled balloon centerpiece.  We have several suggestions, which inclTall-Balloon-Centerpieceude:

One technique, as shown to the left, is to glue to a 3/8″ piece of plywood.  We cut a circular pattern, just a little bit larger than the circumference of the flexible plastic tube, about 1/2″ into the wood and glue the tube in the hole.  Here you might consider added some weight to the base or inside the tube to keep it balanced and free from wobbling.  This mainly depends on the length of the tube and what you put on the top.

Another example is inserting and gluing into a 1-1/2″ styrofoam base (below) or  styrofoam brick.  With this technique you need to have some weight on the base or inside the tube itself with a smaller base.  However, you probably do not need weight with an 11″ or 12″ round or square base.Flexible Plastic Tube in Styrofoam Base
