How to make a Balloon Wreath


  • Straw Wreath – any size is fine, we used 12 inch
  • Balloons – for a 12 inch wreath, you will need a total of 144 balloons – we used 6 colors, 24 of each color, 12 inch balloons work best
  • Floral Pins – available in the floral department at Walmart
  • Twine or ribbon for hanging

First, if you are making the Rainbow Wreath, you will want to divide the wreath into equal sections with twine or ribbon. If you are making a multi-colored Balloon Wreath, there is no need to do this step.

Place a floral pin on each balloon and push the pin into the wreath. Place them randomly and close together for the best look.
