I am always looking for fun ways to make my kids' birthdays more special . . . I originally saw this idea over on How Does She?
and I fell in love with it! I knew that I had to make one for myself! It was really easy and pretty inexpensive. And look how cute it is!
Here is what you need to make one:
-Balloons (I used 320 7" balloons- they come in packs of 40 balloons for 97 cents at Wal-Mart)
-Floral Pins (I also got them at Wal-Mart. A pack of 100 is $1.00)
-A straw wreath (I purchased an 18" wreath at Michael's for $4.99. Use a 40% off coupon to get it for super cheap!!). Keep the plastic wrap on it.
Now comes the fun part . . . take a floral pin and slide it over the middle of the balloon. Poke it into the wreath so that it is nice and tight . . . and repeat . . . and repeat . . . and repeat . . .
If you happen to have your sisters in town (like I do!! Yey for sister time!!), put them to work!!
Just keep poking those balloons in until the entire wreath is full.
And there you go! Ready to put on the door for the next birthday! I am always looking for ways to make birthdays more special and I think that this will make my kids even more excited for when their birthday rolls around. It is a super fun and super easy birthday tradition.
