Birthdays are a big deal in our family. In fact, we don't have birth days, we have birth weeks!! So I knew I had to make the balloon birthday wreath shared by How Does She.
I'm not gonna lie to you - this project was very time consuming. Luckily I was able to convince my super fabulous friend Stephanie that she had to make one with me. We sat down Saturday night with all our supplies and started working on our wreaths.
We used a wire wreath form and tied our balloons around the wire rings. We also added pipe cleaners and ribbon. If we were better prepared we would have had a bottle of wine and enough balloons to complete the project.
For some reason we thought we could make our wreath with fewer balloons than the inspiration piece. Boy were we wrong!! So Sunday morning we set out to buy even more balloons and a few hours later we finally finished out wreaths. After 3 different trips to buy balloons and over 300 balloons, our project was complete .
Now that this beautiful wreath is complete, I will say it was worth the time and effort.
I can't wait until our next birthday celebration so I can hang up my wreath.
And be prepared - if you invite me to a birthday party, I will be showing up with my birthday wreath to display somewhere at your house because I love it so much!
