If I wasn’t on Pinterest so much, I might have more time for dusting my house—
BUT, I wouldn’t have this cute Birthday Balloon Wreath. Check out my inspiration from How Does She and here.
I added a painted monogram letter J, and I can switch it out for the initial of each of my kids on their special day!
Here’s the supply list to make the wreath:
4 small packs greening pins
Ribbon to wrap around the wreath
Monogram wooden letter
I wrapped my straw wreath with red and white polka-dot ribbon first and then started pinning the balloons with the greening pins until I thought it was full enough. Then I wrapped different colors of pipe cleaner around a pencil to make them spiraled, and pinned those into the wreath with the greening pins. My thumb was so red from pushing all the greening pins in—but half-way through I got smart and used a rubber mallet to pound them in. Save your thumbs and use a mallet!!
Wrapping the wreath with ribbon will help you use less balloons on the sides and it just looks cute!
My most cherished compliment came from a 10 year old boy who asked me if I had made this wreath because he thought it was “cool.” I thought he was amazing for even noticing there was a wreath on the door!! It’s a crowd pleaser!
I am linking to the following parties!
