Show and Share :)

Birthday Celebration Wreath




Heres my first shot as a giveaway (wish me luck) I lovee crafts! I mean Im a craft junkie! So when it came time for my little nieces 6th birthday party I just knew I needed something to spruce up the front door of my brothers house.. so my mind went to spinning and I decided on a birthday wreath.... not out of the ribbon like I've seen on some blogs but out of BALLOONS!! (Boy am I a genius :)


I started off with a dollar tree styrofoam wreath and cut it so I could wrap rubberbands around the entire wreath (I used around 40 rubberbands) ... after the rubberbands were placed I hotglued the wreath back together and started my transformation with balloons (150 to be exact)







I took the balloons in groups of 4 random colors and placed them under a rubberband and continued to do so until the wreath was full...





After attachin all the ballons I took the pipecleaners and wrapped them around the wreath once and twisted it tight and took the rest of the cleaner and wrapped it around my finger to make a spiral design and did this randomly around the wreath (I thought it looked super cute like this)



Next I simply decorated with party favors and birthday stickers and the rest is history.. I want to make several more with maybe a little more favors added, however, my time was very limited and the favors and stickers I used I just had on hand...and a little ribbon up top and you have yourself a very adorable wreath!

Now hope on over to Just A Girl for show & share... :), and V and Co for her link me party

Your wreath is so unexpected and definitely festive! I'm thinking this might be one I'll make but I might need more directions as I'm not the craftiest person!
