And here is my new BIRTHDAY WREATH! I've had the stuff to do this one for YEARS!! But I just never got around to it. I'm actually glad for that, because my friend Cami H, just made hers recently and used a STYRAFOAM wreath for hers (instead of straw). I found this wreath at Hobby Lobby...
Same instructions that Heather gave, using the floral pins (100 ct for $1 at Walmart), curly ribbon, and tons of balloons- (about 200+)
* While shopping around looking for the best deal on balloons, I finally came across (in Boise, ID anyway) packages of 25 same-color balloons for $1 at Honks dollar store (better deal than Zurchers!). They had lots of different colors to choose from. And this way you can control the variety of the different colors! *
I found this cute "Happy Birthday" sign in the scrapbook section of Hobby Lobby, added some Glamour Dust (any craft store) and mounted it on red cardstock. (Then I glued & taped a couple of floral pins onto the back of the sign to stick onto the wreath.
I also hot-glued a little silver clip so I can attach the birthday child's name. (Also found at Hobby Lobby- cute gift tags in the birthday section.)
