Made it Myself Monday-- Birthday Wreath

The intentions were to get this Birthday wreath completed for Baby J's birthday, but with everything going on, I just didn't get it finished in time.  In fact, I only finished it today!  I guess it is just in time for my own birthday month! 

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:

light/dark variations on two colors

Love the pink orange



  1. fabulous!
    happy birthdays guaranteed.

  2. Mrs. White...when are you making your chocolate and orange Hermes version?

  3. Ah, there you are!
    That is a fantastic idea! Perhaps a field trip is in order for inspiration.
    How's things?
