...Had this idea to put little bends in coat-hangers to hold balloons by their 'nozzles' .... cut a couple of slots in my target holder and ended up with this .... any breeze makes the balloons dance around and I can change the their size as well ..... Now, If I could just go shooting ! ....

If you want a nice effect shooting balloons try adding some baby powder in them.
I have a plastic bottle with a narrow opening that contains a mixture of crushed sidewalk chalk and baby powder that I use.

balloons with baby powder is the single most amazing idea ever! Mush cheaper than exploding targets and looks just as cool!
