Balloon Wreath Tutorial

Oh Happy Day!
My Little Art Party was featured over

I am so excited!! What? 
Excited is not even the word!
I really have no words to describe
how over the moon I am!

Well, I have had a few people write and ask
about how to make these very fun
balloon wreaths.

They are so easy you are not going to believe it!

So here are the instructions that I used

What do you need:

You need balloons. Lots and lots of balloons.
I used 3 bags of 72 count variety colored balloons.
 2 greening pin packs-
found at Craft stores in the artificial plant section

 Straw wreath
Important: leave the plastic on so it doesn’t shed.

What to Do:

You just take a greening pin, stick the balloon in the middle…

and stick it to the straw wreath......

Do this over and over and over until the whole wreath
 is filled in colorful balloons!

There you go!
Finished Product!

It is that simple!
