Jay_s_mickey_mouse_balloon_column_thumb I built the stand with a 10 ft PVC pipe, which I had Home Depot cut in half. They also had a piece of shelving wood that was 11x48 inches for only $2!! I had them cut two 12 inch pieces from it to use as my base. To connect the PVC pipe and 11x12 inch base, I purchased a 1/2 inch floor flange (screw into the base board with 1/2 inch wood screws), I used a 1/2 inch PVC adapter to screw into the floor flange, then I twisted the pvc pipe into the adapter, and viola! I also used a pvc cap to go on the cut end of the pipe, which is the top of the stand. That will prevent the jagged edges from popping the balloons. Tie two groups of balloons together, then twist them together with another set of two, making a group of four. I just grabbed 2 balloons, spread them open and pushed them onto the pole, without twisting them onto the pole, like most people do. I didn't want them to pop. They actually stayed in place as you see. You can go to You Tube to see how it's done! For the topper (Mickey), that is the only one filled with helium, so it can float. It is attached to a ribbon, which you will just wrap around the first couple of layers of balloons to hold it in place. Make sure you place the balloon down far enough to hide the top of the piping and just wrap the ribbon around the balloons to secure it in place!!!!

Jay_s_mickey_mouse_balloon_column_thumb BTW, I used a total of 40 balloons. There are 8 row of 4 each, 1 row of 3 (larger polka dot balloons) and the Mickey Mouse topper!
