DIY: Gold Painted Balloons

If you need a quick and inexpensive way to glam up your NYE party look no further. These gold painted balloons are an easy way to add a pop of sparkle to any party.



  • Balloons
  • Gold Paint
  • Paint Brush


  • 2 Minutes per balloon


  • No crafting skills required.

We tried two different techniques when creating these gold painted balloons. First, you will want to mix your paint with a little bit of water. Thinning down the paint helps it go on to the balloons easier! Don’t add too much water or else the paint will just run off of your balloon.


Hold the balloon from the top and paint from the knotted end towards the center. We loved the look of the brush strokes so after one coat we were finished.


We also used an old 90’s favorite… the splatter technique. Dip your paint brush in the paint and water mixture. Use a clean brush or stick and tap them together causing the paint to fly off the brush.


You can expect to get dirty with this DIY, so craft outside if possible. Let the balloons dry a few minutes and you are all set!
