You can make crochet party balloons to hand out as favors, but first use them as decor! Using the crochet party favor balloons is a great way to save on money and supplies, and your guests will have a fun and eco-friendly toy to bring home with them. Keep reading for the free pattern.
Crochet Party Balloons as Favors and Decoration
Inspiration can come from a lot of different places, and it was you, my awesome readers, who inspired this project! When I first released my Crochet Water Balloon pattern, several of you mentioned that you thought they would be cute party favors. I thought that was an AWESOME idea. And because I really like to "multi-purpose" things-I thought it would be even cooler if they could double as part of the party decor as well!
Now I wish I could say that I had an actual party to set up for, but really this was just the perfect excuse to go and buy some cupcakes 🙂 I really do like to bake, but in the interest of prioritizing my time I went the quick route instead.
The beauty of using these crochet party balloons as a summer party favor is that after the kids get all hyped up on sugar, you can send them outside with these and use them as water balloons (see details here). Also, by making them with the Bernat Blanket Brights Variegated yarn, you still get those awesome bright colors that you need for a party, but no one will be fighting over which color they get 🙂
