The Birthday Balloon Wreath

Print Friendly

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.

    The picture of the wreath just brought back memories of my sister and I making hair clips that look just like it! We tied small balloons around blank hair clips we bought at the craft store. We loved them! Thanks for the fun reminder! :)

    Oh my goodness! I haven’t seen one of these for years. I made one in the late 80’s early 90’s. We pinned other things to the straw wreaths also like strips of flannel, fleece or regular fabric…Really a cool idea and the color themes are endless!
