Birthday Balloon Wreath

Last year Missy featured this adorable birthday wreath on How Does She and I thought I would give it a whirl. Here’s the completed balloon wreath the easy instructions so you can create it on your own!


First I gathered my supplies:

  • Straw wreath still in the plastic
  • 6-8 bags of multi-colored balloons from the Dollar Store
  • Greenery pins (I used about 200 total)
  • Birthday ribbon or other embellishments
To get started, I took a greenery pin, placed it around the middle of the balloon and stuck it all the way into the straw wreath as seen below.
And… that’s about it. I did that step about 200 times over! Here’s some progress…
I made sure the colors were spread out evenly and only covered the front of the wreath and a little bit on the sides.
Once all of the balloons were in place, I decided to add a little bit of pizzazz and found some Happy Birthday ribbon in my craft closet.
I added a simple bow to the top of the wreath and let the ends hang down so people could read the ribbon.
And that’s it! Super simple and relatively cheap. I spent $3 on the wreath, $7 on balloons, and around $5 on greenery pins. I already had the ribbon in stock so not too shabby for a wreath I can use several times a year for birthday parties!

    What a cute idea!
    Years ago, my mom made us hair clips with balloons.
    Recently, my dd had a party to go to and we used balloons to dress up a pair of flip flops like this.
    So cute!

    You’ve inspired me to want to dig out my extras!
