Balloon Wreath Tutorial
I love my balloon wreath. In fact, I just plain love wreaths. From burlap to balloons-I don’t judge! I love them all. This balloon wreath is no different. While it was pricey to make, it’s usable for every single birthday party!
Directions for balloon wreath:
Balloons-LOTS of them-at least 250. This project is kinda pricey.
A straw wreath form with wrapping intact. (I didn’t use Styrofoam in case all the pins made the form crack. I didn’t get a picture of it, either. I was too excited to start!)
Floral pins. I would guess that straight pins would work as well.
First, take your straw wreath while in the plastic, and lay it on the floor.
Take balloons two or three at a time, and spread the larger part of the balloons out, but lay the narrow ends together.
Pin the balloons to the wreath.
Repeat x infinity.
Until your balloon wreath resembles something like this:
You may have to stick a few extra balloons in once you’ve finished it. Hang the wreath up and walk around it looking for any spots that show pins or the straw, and cover them. Shake the wreath lightly and check for any loose balloons. If both of these are taken care of, congrats! You’ve just made a balloon wreath!
This project was SUPER simple, but it took probably an hour to make-and my hands were really sore from pushing in all those floral pins. This wreath would look great with some glittery picks or bows, or even a small pennant banner! And when you’re done, just take the balloon wreath down and put it away until the next party-or, take off the balloons & pins, and start over for another season. Black, orange, yellow, and purple for Halloween, green, red, gold, and silver for Christmas, etc, etc. The possibilities are endless with a balloon wreath!

I love balloon wreaths. They make the perfect decoration for parties. We made a Minnie Mouse balloon wreath and it was adorable.
