1.Use a jigsaw to cut your pegboard into the dimensions you desire, mine are 48 inches x 14 inches. If you’re not saw-friendly, head to your local Home Depot and a sales associates will be happy to cut your pegboard. Glue the foam board to the back of the pegboard using a hot glue gun. Sit heavy books on the back of the pegboard to seal the hot glue in place. Optional: Then using Rust-Oleum Universal in Bronze spray your pegboard and let it dry for 1-2 hours.
2.Fill the 5’inch balloons with air and tie the balloon to the balloon stick. Repeat this step about 30-35 times.
3.Cut the balloon sticks to about 6-8 inches long to create a variation of balloon height. Place the balloon sticks randomly onto the pegboard varying in height to create dimension. Glue the bottom of the balloon stick to the board using hot glue.
4.Cut the stem off of the faux flowers and glue the flower to the board.
5.Style this beautiful balloon centerpiece on your dining room table or at the next baby shower, bridal shower or wedding.
