The balloon wreath was a great project that I found online. I thought this would be a cute wreath to use on birthday weeks (or maybe months). I went for a colorful variation since I was going to use it for both my boys and my daughter, but you can pick any cute color combination. In fact, I can imagine that down the road I may have a half dozen of these wreaths to match different birthday colors.
There are a couple of sites that provide tutorials, but I used Our Best Bites . She does a great job of showing exactly what you need. The only thing I had a hard time finding was the floral picks, but oriental trading has them just for $3.99.
This is definitely a wreath you can make with the littles. Mine all helped. They didn't work as methodically as me, but it all looked great in the end.
Here are a few other variations that I liked:

|Love the pink orange|
