I loved this when I saw this. I knew I had to make it! It’s taken me over two months to finish it though! You’d be amazed how hard it is to find floral pins in this area of Florida 😛 I ended up using approximately 300 balloons and pins and then I got to upcycle the ribbon that was wrapped around an awesome box of chocolates my brother and sister in law sent to me from Godiva. I love this wreath. It’s bright and cheerful and just says birthday to me. Brilliant!
I got most of the hardware supplies at Michael’s and Walmart. And I definitely support the original poster’s suggestion to use the straw wreath and to keep the plastic on it. One of my little one’s took the plastic off the first one I bought… I tested out how the push pins stayed and they didn’t 😛 The balloons were from Walmart – in their party section. The only bad thing about this wreath? Lol! The sore fingers from pushing in the pins! 😀
