I stumbled across this looking for something else... now I have to figure out where to get the "hi-float" they speak of.

This is too cool!

Crafty Crafty: Halloween: how to make spider web balloons

I would love to try to do this for my "Tempt Your Fate" balloons - and have the fate printed on a spider cutout to be tangled in the webbing.

ETA: they sell it in the USA! Woot!

I have a brand new bottle of hi-float. I bought it for a party last oct and never used it! You want it?

That is an awesome find. May have to consider that one or hold onto to it for a possible kid's party down the road.

Hi-float sounds like a party store thing, if you don't want to buy online.

You should be able to get Hi-Float at Party City. I used to work at Paper Warehouse (now Party City or Party Universe) and basically the Hi-Float is a sticky substance we squirted into the balloons to coat the inside that helps them last longer.

Did you get the Hi-Float at oriental trading too? And has anyone done these balloons in the past? Is it as easy as it looks? I would love to try these this year.

Aw, that's so nice! I'm in Texas, tho so the shipping wouldn't be great. ;)

I can get it around here most likely, but I really appreciate the offer! :)

Hey Frankies girl: I went to Hi-Float's website and they say you can get it at Party America. There isn't one in Houston but you might have to drive a little ways to get it. I am driving about 45 minutes to go to Ikea tonight and there is one pretty close to that. Here is the link HI-FLOAT

I got two made and found thru trial and error that I required more than 1 pump of hi float I used two on one and one on the other.It also takes longer to dry 2-3 days.I also used a balloon pump instead of helium.


this one has two pumps of hf.




this one has one.
I am going to work with them some more becuase they still don't have the effect I was hoping for.
