Advanced Method:

  • Blow up your balloons with helium and tie with a string.
  • Have a browse online of the different emojis that are popular at the moment and choose which ones you want to recreate.
  • Get a larger version of the face in a search online so you can see the details while you sketch it out on to the vinyl. You can also trace it on to the vinyl if you prefer.
  • Get the scissors and cut out the eyes, mouth, heart eyes and whichever features you have sketched.
  • Peel the vinyl off the backing and begin adhering to your balloon as desired.
  • Add the rest of the pieces of the face. Make sure you don’t make the vinyl pieces too large or they could weigh down the balloons.
