How Does She…make a birthday wreath?
This wreath is so festive and fun to decorate with for every birthday!
Birthday Balloon Wreath!
First you need balloons. Lots and lots of balloons.
(2 bags of 72 count…the 1 1/2 to 2 inch sized balloon. If you want it more full and to fill the outside edges, use more)
You also need:
1. 2 greening pin packs-found at Craft stores in the artificial plant section.
2. and a straw wreath -leave the plastic on so it doesn’t shed.
You just take a greening pin, stick the balloon in the middle…
Push it in nice and tight.
Do this over and over and over until the whole wreath is filled in colorful balloons!
Our good friend Amber is the pro at making these – she was so nice to let us take pictures of her making one so we could share it with all of you! She said she originally got the idea from a wonderful lady named Carleen Tanner. Amber is such a fun person to be around…as you can see in the picture (another thing she got roped into:)
“Hi my name is Amber and life is GRAND!
I’m married to my best friend & I am a mom to five beautiful kids (3 boys 2 girls).
Life is never dull! I love doing all sorts of new activities (riding a very small bike down a hill:)”
