  20. We just picked up the supplies to make these for our wedding. We suddenly realized that we’re going to have to paint them while they’re blown up. Any ideas on how long helium would last in them? I’d like to be able to do these ahead of time and not the night before my wedding.

  21. Hi there!

    I just wanted to pop over and let you know that I’ve shared this post in an inspiration board for a Cute Candy Themed Birthday Party my blog.

    Here is the direct link to the post if you want to check it out:

    Thanks for sharing this post! I may have never found what I was looking for :)

  22. These are so cute! Had no idea donut shaped balloons existed!


  23. oh,so you buy donut balloons and make…donut balloons out of them? Wow, I’m amazed, who knew this was possible!

  24. I was SO excited to make these for my daughter’s donut-themed second birthday party tomorrow! However, when I brought the balloons to our nearest Party City to have them blown up, the balloon wouldn’t inflate properly. All of the helium would rest in the bottom half of the “donut”, and it would burst if they tried to push it any further. I tried calling the manufacturer of the balloons, but they were closed. Any thoughts or tips???

  25. Lovely post. It just started its life on FB among Balloon professionals. As a balloon professional myself and worldwide balloon instructor (yes that exists! lol) I can give you some tips. The Original Donut balloons are made by the US brand Qualatex. The balloons are made from 100% natural latex. This means if you do not store them well and leave them f.i. exposed to sunlight they Biodegrade and break down. (possibly causing the popping) another fact: a balloon professional should have known that the way we inflate the donuts is by holding the neck very close on to the nozzle so we start by inflating the top and stop when we have a nice round shape. (do not inflate the neck) last tip: Hi float only retains the helium in the balloon when it has dried up. Different temperature, humidity and ventilation will result in different float times or in extreme situations not even work. once again cute idea and enjoy the balloons.

  26. where can you by the donut shaped balloons, besides amazon and ebay ????? please replie ! my best friends birthday is next week and i want to give something creative.

  36. Okay I’m in the middle of making these right now for my daughters first birthday. I went and had the balloons blown up with hi float and they are still facing towards the ground because of the heaviness of the paint! I’ve watered down my acrylic paint so much that I am putting it in front of a fan when I’m done so it quickly dries and doesn’t drip. Still having issues with them facing the ground and not floating properly. Any suggestions? I’m on my fourth test balloon and I’m ready to just put confetti on just the plain white balloons with no paint. Please help!!!!

  37. I tried making these and the paint was just too heavy for the balloons and they no longer would float. I’m going to try this again but I was so bummed! If anyone figured out a way for these to still work let me know!!

  38. i love love love this!!! so clever and cute!
