Glitter balloons

For my DS's birthday party I want to put silver glitter inside clear balloons. Do I just get some glitter, funnel it into a balloon then use the helium? Will this make the glitter evenly disperse inside the balloon or will I have clumps? Of course, I want them to look nice so any advice would be extremely helpful. Also if anyone has done this could I please see a picture?

  • I'm pretty sure it would just fall to the bottom, or even pop the balloon since glitter can be sharp. You can get balloons that are already glittery at a party supply store. Good luck. You're brave to even use balloons, they freak me out.

  • I think it sounds like a cute idea- however what is going to make the glitter stick to the walls inside of the balloon and not fall to the bottom???

    The only thing I can find is on a hi-float website. I'm thinking I'm going to have to buy some (it's $15!) in order to do this...so I might not, depending on my budget after everything else.

    FYI IF IT POPS WITH WILL BE A HUGE MESS

    Thanks, I am aware that glitter is messy. 1) It's going to be outdoors and 2) Even if it were inside, I'm willing to deal with a mess since it would really add to the decor. It's my baby's party and I don't care HOW messy it gets. Messes can be cleaned up!
