Materials For Making Cement Balloon Planters
– 7″ round balloons – Cement All, Rapid Set – Mortar mix – Durable nitrile gloves – Old wire mesh strainer with hooks – Disposable plastic mixing bowl
Step 1. Inflate The Balloon
Inflate your balloon but keep in mind, the finished piece will end up being larger than the balloon because of the thickness of the cement.
Step 2. Set Up The Balloon
If you are using a mesh strainer, then take a mixing bowl and cover it in a plastic grocery bag to protect it.
Step 3. Mix The Cement
In the big disposable plastic bowl, pour in about 1/2 a cup of water. Add a little bit of cement and mix with your hands. Make sure you wear gloves!
