Since today began the countdown, we hung up our Birthday Wreath. In the future, I think I will add a brightly-colored wooden letter for whoever's birthday it is. But, for now, it's simply a rainbow assortment of balloons, ribbon and pipe cleaners.
If you want to make your own, here is what I did. These links are not sponsored, they are just to help you see the materials I actually used.
Birthday Celebration Wreath
styrofoam wreath (any size)
pipe cleaners, ribbon, ect
Place two different colored balloons in opposite directions on one floral pin and slide them to the end.
Continue this all the way around the wreath. This was actually the hardest part for me because I had to remind myself not to be a crazy person about what colors were next to each other. This took me just over 2 small bags of balloons.
Once you've placed your balloons all the way around the wreath, take a step back and make sure you don't have any gaps that need more balloons.
Add any decorative pieces such as pipe cleaners or ribbon using the floral pins.
Add a hanger. I used the same ribbon I used in the wreath, in yellow. At first, I only used the floral pins but they weren't strong enough. I tied the ribbon around the wreath, under the balloons, and secured it using floral pins.
And there you have it! A fairly simple birthday craft! This could easily be done with any color balloons to match your party decor. I considered using red, black and yellow because Audie's party theme is Mickey Mouse but since we wanted to use this more than once, I just went with something festive!
If you have any questions or snags along your wreath-making journey, feel free to let me know! I would love to help you!
