Is it just me, or do balloons seem to be having another renaissance these days? I keep spotting happy helium-inspired objects everywhere. First there were the balloon dog bookends, then groovy balloon lights on Design Milk, stunning marbleized balloons in the new issue of House Beautiful, and balloon ice cream cones and today’s delight — these Halloween-ready spiderweb balloons — on Pinterest.

Apparently, the web effect is created with just a few pumps of Hi-Float, and the spider is one of those rubber or plastic spiders you see a lot this time of year. (Get the instructions here.) Despite my paralyzing arachnophobia, these balloons really appeal to me. How do you plan to decorate for Halloween?

    What a great Halloween idea — I love that balloon! I tend to decorate with a lot of pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns, plus a few skeletons thrown in for a bit of spookiness, but a bunch of spiderweb balloons would fit in just fine! I couldn't resist this recent purchase:


    This well-known 1892 illustration is either spooky or elegant, depending upon how you look at it, and is a perfect addition to my Halloween décor!

      That illo is both spooky and elegant! Love it. I have a retro-looking paper skeleton that I like to put on the door, but I still have yet to carve or paint pumpkins at home this year. That's on the agenda for this week. :)

    I have tried it and it is really creepy….took me a while to do it right, but it cool. Of course, I had to give it away as soon as possible….looked too much like real spiders for me :D

      That's what I was worried about, too, @fxgeorges! Good to know that it actually works, though. Such a spooky effect.

    A balloon is an inflatable flexible bag filled with a gas, such as helium, hydrogen, nitrous oxide, oxygen, or air. Modern balloons can be made from materials such as rubber, latex, polychloroprene, or a nylon fabric, while some early balloons were made of dried animal bladders, such as the pig bladder.

A spider web, spiderweb, spider's web or cobweb (from the obsolete word coppe, meaning "spider") is a device built by a spider out of proteinaceous spider silk extruded from its spinnerets.Spider webs have existed for at least 140 million years, as witnessed in a rare find of Early Cretaceous amber from Sussex, southern England.
