Of all the things I made for my daughter's Up!-themed birthday party, the balloon wreath is the very first thing I did. Since a major part of the movie Up! is centered around balloons, I knew I had to make a balloon wreath for the front door to set the theme. I got the inspiration for the wreath from this one on How Does She? I put my own spin on it, and this is what I came up with!
- Styrofoam wreath form
- Crepe paper
- Greening pins (u-shaped pins found in the flower arranging section)
- Embroidery floss
- Hot glue
First, wrap your wreath form in crepe paper, gluing at the ends with hot glue. If you want to use something sturdier, wrap your wreath form in fabric. I went the easy route, but crepe paper is fragile so you have to watch out for tears as you wrap.
Next, take your greening pins and a balloon and stick them to your wreath form. You want to push the greening pin in around the middle of the balloon to secure. Make sure your balloons are close together so they hide the greening pins.
Repeat this process to make a cluster of balloons. To finish, wrap some embroidery floss around the wreath and glue at the ends.
And now you have a cute balloon wreath, perfect for an Up! birthday...or any birthday party really.
