When you rub a balloon against you pants leg you are charging the electrons in the balloon. Think opposites attract when you place the balloon against the wall. At this point the balloons electrons are charged creating static electricity where the walls are not charged. the electrons grab hold of the wall but also do not let go of the balloon thus causing them to stick together.
