The Birthday Balloon Wreath

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)


Floral Pins


-A straw wreath (I purchased an 18″ wreath on Amazon for pretty 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.
