    1
    Blow up about four to eight purple balloons for each bunch of grapes. If making more than one bunch of grapes, feel free to vary the amount of balloons for each bunch.
    • Tie a knot in the end of each balloon.
    • Keep the balloons small and round. Don’t blow the balloons to their full size or the bunch will look too large.

Method 2
Making the leaves
