Make a Statement at Your Child's Next Birthday Party with a Simple Birthday Wreath!


Lately, I am on a wreath kick... I made one for Thanksgiving, 3 for Christmas (plus 11 for gifts), a dinosaur wreath for my son's birthday party (with a second one planned), and I am working on putting together one for Valentine's Day. I decided that I wanted to make at least one wreath each month of this year to keep things interesting. I figured I would make a birthday wreath for January since my little guy's birthday is this month. This wreath will also be used in April for a week or so for my big guy's birthday.  I saw similar wreaths like this one on Etsy that were selling for over $60 and I made it for under $10! This wreath was very simple to make and it didn't take too long make either.

I used a hay wreath that I picked up at the craft store using a 50% off coupon, so it only cost me like $2.00. I grabbed the floral pins at the craft store, they were $1.99 for a pack of 150, I used about half of them (check the dollar store for these, sometimes they have them in stock). I purchased big packs of balloons from the dollar store, I used 4 bags for my 14 inch wreath.
Take 2 balloons and roughly fold them in half, take a floral pin and place it over the midway point of the balloons and push it completely into the wreath.

Repeat, placing the balloons next to each other in different directions until the wreath is completely covered. Please don't mind my severely peeling nail polish, my nails clearly need some attention! LOL
Once the wreath is covered, fill in as needed.
You have a beautiful, colorful, and very happy birthday wreath!
I found this little wooden pre-painted "party" sign at the craft store for $1.29 that I attached, using hot glue.
What do you think?
So cute and simple... And under $10.00!
What more could I ask for?
I love it and so does my son-- He woke up with the biggest smile the next morning because he knew it was made especially for his birthday!


  1. I'm doing a #disneyside party and this would be so cute at the front door! I'll have to add some styrofoam for the ears and viola! Thanks for sharing!

    1. That's an awesome idea! I'd love to see a picture of the finished wreath!
