During our trip to Hobby Lobby, we purchased a 50% off straw wreath for only $2. We used 325 balloons of assorted colors and sizes. These were $1.99 per 100 balloons. The curling ribbon was $1.99 for a spool containing four different colors and prints.
I bought 2 packages of floral pins for $1.47 each at Hobby Lobby. I ran out of pins and bought 2 more packages at Walmart for $1 each.
I left the plastic wrap on the straw wreath to keep it from shedding all over. Sophie and I pinned the balloons all over the front of the wreath. We overlapped the balloons and turn them this way and that. Each balloon was pinned on individually. I finished it off by pinning on a few curly ribbons.
I think our party guests will feel welcomed and ready to celebrate Sophie's 4th birthday next week.
The total for this project was about $15. This wreath will be used again and again for many birthdays yet to come. Plus, Sophie and I thoroughly enjoyed working on it together. I found this birthday balloon wreath idea at How Does She?
