DIY Emoji Independence Day Balloons

Hey All!

I’m sure you all know Independence Day is just around the corner. If you’re like me and you love the red, white and blue, you probably going to be throwing a fun party to watch the fireworks and celebrate. Who doesn’t love July 4th fireworks?! Today, I’m super excited to partner with Balloon Time to show you some super quick and easy DIY Independence Day Balloons to decorate your July 4th parties with. I’m obsessed with emoji faces, so I thought it would be fun to make some fun red, white and blue bow tie wearing emoji balloons and some fun July 4th phrase balloons. These emojis are dressed in their Independence Day best and I love how cute they are! I also made a little balloon table runner out of some star balloons. All of this can be made in less than an hour, which is perfect for all you last minute decorators. You’re party guests will think you spent hours on it and they will definitely love all this fun patriotic balloons!

Here is how to make these fun and festive balloons!

DIY Independence Day Balloons Supplies


  • Balloon Time Helium Tank.
  • Emoji Balloons.
  • Various sizes of Star Balloons in Red, White, Blue, and Silver. (Silver can be small as it’s for the balloon table runner)
  • Stick On Letters or Stick On Vinyl and a Craft Cutting Machine.
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Straw.
  • Red, White and Blue Tissue Paper.
  • White Ribbon (Comes with Balloon Time Helium Tank!)
  • Glue Gun.


Start with the large floating balloons. If you have stick on letter you simply stick on your phrase and inflate your balloons with the Balloon Time Helium Tank. If you don’t have stick on letters, simply type out your Independence Day phrase, upload it to your craft cutting machine and cut out your stick on letters to put on your star balloons. You’ll then inflate them with your Balloon Time Helium Tank and tie a white ribbon to each balloon. With a Balloon Time Helium Tank, you can create party time magic anytime and anywhere!

Then you’ll make your small table runner star balloons. The small balloons can be inflated using a straw, as they are too small to inflate with helium. You simply stick your phrase on the mini balloon, inflate by blowing into your straw, and then tie or tape the end. You then spread them out in the center of your table.

DIY Independence Day Balloons Step 1

For the Emoji balloons, you cut out two pieces of two inch thick the red, white, and blue tissue paper. The tissue paper can only be two sheets of tissue paper thick or else it will weigh down the balloon.

You then take your three strips of tissue paper and pinch them down the middle. You cut a small one inch thick piece of red tissue paper and wrap it around the middle.

You then glue the back of this red small strip securely in the back of your bow with your glue gun.

You lastly cut your bow down on each side in a circular motion, so it looks like a bow.

You’ll then stick your bow on to the base of your inflated emoji balloon with your glue gun, so it looks like it’s wearing a bow tie. You’ll repeat the process for each emoji and star balloon you make! That’s it! Super easy I told you!
