After discovering this wreath on How Does She, I set out to make one myself.

I used 7-inch round balloons and managed to use about 10 times the balloons than the instructions did. Does it mean I'm uptight since my balloons were placed super close together and all uniform? Probably.

I wish I could just apply this obsessive trait to a needful area of my life. But back to the wreath. Once finished, I tugged some balloons out a bit to add a bit of "droopiness" to the finished product. Before that it looked a bit too buttoned-up.

My thumbs are raw from shoving the floral pins into the wreath form, but the kiddos love it and it's quite fetching in it's colorful glory. Technically it is a birthday wreath, but since today is my sweet sister-in-law's birthday, we'll pretend she doesn't live in Buffalo and display it in her honor.

Happy Birthday, KR!

Meanwhile, I'm enjoying the splash of color in our otherwise sterile-looking, pre-window treatment home.

  1. I love this! I had seen one like this on another blog and was thinking about making one post-wedding. I am the same way - I want every bit of the wreath to be covered! Maybe that's why we get along so well. :)
