Here's how it turned out. I'm not a fan of the forest green front door. A year and a half in this house and it's still on my to do list.
Here's the materials I used:
- 14" Straw wreath (leave the plastic on. It's less messy)
- 3 - 72 pack bags of balloons. I used most of the 3 packs
- 4 - 50 packs of floral pins. The ones that look like giant staples.
- Sparkly pipe cleaners
- Ribbon. Enough to cover the wreath and make the bow to hang from.
I started by wrapping the wreath in sheer ribbon. As stated on lots of sites, the ribbon makes it so you don't need to worry as much about covering the edges with ballons. I chose sheer so that the straw texture was still visible. It took me 2 rolls of ribbon to cover it completely.
After adding all the balloons, I twisted pipe cleaners around a pencil and added them as well. It adds a little sparkle and fun. I may end up adding more. My girls and I love sparkle.
