DIY Tutorial From a Catch My Party Member - How to Make a Balloon Wreath

When I saw this balloon wreath Lisa G hung on her front door for her Seuss-y Party, I thought it was the perfect way to welcome her guests. I also wanted to know how she made it.

Lisa put together this simple tutorial on her blog Blissful Chaos, and let me repost it, so thank you, Lisa!

Lisa made this sweet balloon wreath for Landon's Dr. Seuss party using the same wreath and a lot of the same balloons from her Susan's baby shower. How great to find decorations that can be used over and over again!

Supplies:

  • LOTS of balloons for this wreath I used about 130 but the more you use the fuller the wreath will be
  • 18 inch straw wreath
  • 2 packs of greening pins (may need more depending on the number of balloons you use)
Instructions:

Leave the plastic on the straw wreath to prevent shedding. Take a balloon and twist the neck, inserting it into the middle of the greening pin.

Push the greening pin into the wreath and press in tight to prevent floppy balloons.

Continue all the way around the wreath until the entire wreath is covered!

There you have it!

Lisa wanted to add a little something extra to Landon's wreath so she used the "Welcome" sign and Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat symbol from the printable package she got on etsy from Dimple Prints.  How sweet!!

Thank you, Lisa, for this tutorial. I think balloon wreaths are so festive and fun!
