    To start, you have to cut a thread of the length of the desired sausage. To be able to make a wave, I recommend a wire of at least 4 m. Then, you have to stretch it. To stretch it, you have to tie it from end to end to chairs (or door handles or physical persons). Then you have to inflate the balloons one by one and tie the knot directly around the wire so that the balloon slides along the wire. Balloons can be stuck to each other.

    This is what attached balloons look like. All you have to do is inflate as many balloons as necessary to get a bunch of balloons. To fix the sausage, you have to tape the nylon thread with thick tape. Check, before sticking, that your tape does not tear off the paint. If you want to make a wave, leave breathing spaces (vacuum) between a few balloons so you have room to push the yarn up the wall and tape it down. Do not hesitate to inflate a few additional balloons by varying the inflation sizes and stick them on the sausage with double tape so as to create volume and differences in size and thus perception. If you want to create a denser area, you can make a second small sausage that you tape below or above the first sausage.
