Balloon Birthday Wreath Tutorial!

Last year my friend, Gena, made a super cute balloon birthday wreath with her mom and sisters!  I’ve wanted one ever since…and I finally got it done! Thanks Gena for the great idea!
First, I gathered all my supplies.
*A straw wreath (leaving the plastic on so that you don’t make a huge mess!),
*about 8 packages of 25 balloons from the dollar store,
*some curly ribbon,
*and a lot of craft pins.
Walmart had the craft pins 100 for $1.00. They were a little more at JoAnn’s.
Then I simply started “pinning” the balloons in the wreath.
I LOVE all the colors, but you could pick and choose if you wanted too.
(One of the things I really like about this wreath is that it is gender neutral!)
 I put the pins close together (about 1/2 inch apart) and then at the end, I made a few adjustments.
Isn’t this SO fun?  It makes me smile just thinking about it!  It’s so bright and cheery!
Who wouldn’t be excited to wake up and find this hanging on their door??
(Okay, maybe my husband, but I’m still hanging it!  Love ya hun!  🙂
When that was complete, I just “pinned” in some of the ribbons here and there
to make it look FULLAND FUN!!!
And because I loved all of the “after” pictures for different reasons,
here are a few more for your viewing pleasure!
Go make one today!  It really is super fun!
I recommend doing this with a friend (or in my case…sister :).
It goes a lot faster, it saved my poor tired thumb, and we had fun talking the whole time!
Thanks for your help Cali!

  1. That’s so cute, Em! I can’t believe how much the ribbon added! It made it that much cuter!
    It looks like it took a lot of time to pin them all in!

  2. Hey Emily did you pin each balloon one at a time or did you cluster them and then pin them on? Also on the ribbon did you double them and curl them first then? This is super cute and I think we will make one. Also for Easter we are making a plastic Easter Egg wreath should be cute too. Thanks for sharing your ideas and talents!

  3. That is such a cute idea Em! If I get time before the party on Saturday, I TOTALLY want to make one. Was it Micah’s birthday? Good job. I love how it turned out. I also think maybe one of those foam wreath forms might be easy, and no worry about the straw mess. They used to sell them at the dollar store, but I looked yesterday and couldn’t find any 🙁

  4. This is wonderful! Just a thought you could go to the party store and get the big bags of different object and randomly tie them there out the wreath with ribbons. Like something like stars, or different colored letters, maybe of the person the party is for. I even thought for baby showers you could use boy or girl colors and hang like little rattles and bottes,ect. This is really such a great ideal it opens the door to so much more way to crate! Thank you 🙂

  5. I teach Kindergarten…what a wonderful way to let our whole hall know we are having a birthday in our room! I think the kids will love it! Thanks for sharing!

  6. With a sophisticated beach wedding theme, just use simple,
    elegant colors like silver, gold and white and add a
    touch of blue. An adult, even in recovery, may suppress unresolved and
    often-unrecognized trauma from childhood experiences and it is energetic residue is quite toxic.
    This Lavender Christmas Gift Bottle oozes pedigree charm rolling around
    in its resplendent frame.
