"1 Fully inflate a balloon. Tie the knot and tail togeth-I er. Inflate a second balloon to about three-fourths of the size of the first balloon. Tie the knot to the tail. Inflate a third balloon to about half the size of the first balloon. Tie the knot to the tail. You now have three circular balloons of varying sizes.
Using a string or uninflated balloon, tie all three balloons together at the knotted tops.
2Thread a fully blown balloon through all three balloons, then tie its knot and tail together.
3Thread another fully blown balloon through the middle and large balloons, but NOT through the small balloon. Tie its knot and tail together.
4Thread another fully blown balloon through the three lowest balloons and tie off. You have a chain. Tie the top balloons to something high and continue making your chain until you have reached the desired length.
