This is a 20′ wall MadeWithBalloons™and Rouse Matrix™ Builders. It looks like a lot of fun for Halloween today. It was also fun when it was first built in Spain in 2008.

Here are some notes on how it was done and techniques you can use to build similar displays of your own.

Students at this RouseABOUT™ Graphics Seminar in Madrid used the Rouse patented “FAST” (“Speed Graphics”) technique to load strings of double-ended balloons into connected Rouse Matrix™ Builders to form the pumpkin wall. 

"Cat & Pumpkin Wall" construction MadeWithBalloons™ and Rouse Matrix™ Expand-And-Load™, JustRouseIt™ balloon framesThe black cat was made with smaller balloons inflated to 4″ in diameter and loaded into RMS™ Banners in a cat shape. Scissors were used to cut around the cat to eliminate the extra Matrix. The cat was used as an overlay on top of the wall.

This short (81 seconds) video demonstrates just how fast this Rouse “Speed Graphics” technique can be.


This 2.5 minute video gives you a closer look at just how this “FAST” technique works whether you are building a design for Halloween, Christmas, New Year, etc. With a little practice you can double or quadruple your balloon loading speed. Just be sure to use official Rouse Matrix™ Expand-And-Load™ balloon frames.

This technique is patented and requires a special license for use with other balloon frames. Contact Graham Rouse at for a license for frames other than RMS™.
