3rd Birthday Balloon Wreath


When I saw a birthday wreath over at In Between Laundry,
I decided I had to make one (sort of like it) for Henry’s birthday today!

I plan to use this wreath over and over again for upcoming birthdays
and switch out the numbers for each kid.

I modified the wreath (obviously) to use what I had on hand.
Here’s what Henry and I did to make the
3rd Birthday Balloon Wreath:

I cut a wreath shape out of cardboard
and a Number 3.
I set out our materials:
Cupcake Liners
Number 3:
Green Paint
Child’s Scissors
Green Yarn
Green Crinkle Paper
Green Tissue Paper
Green Buttons
Henry decorated the 3.
I decorated the wreath.
Henry started by painting the 3 completely green.
He added glue to the painted 3.
Henry worked on his cutting skills
and cut up small pieces of green paper. 
Added the assortment of decorations listed above.

And wrapped yarnaround it.

Henry’s number 3.
In addition to just swapping out the numbers,
I’d love for this to be a tradition for me and the kids every year.
To make the wreath just theirs for their birthday, together.
I made the wreath myself.
[my ME project from last month, just had to wait for Henry's birthday to post it.]
I simply tied off the balloons like you would normally do after you blow them up.
And stapled them to the cardboard wreath.
I twisted the cupcake liners in the middle to make some sort of flower
and also stapled them on.
I kept adding and adding until it became full enough.
I hung it with a ribbon
and simply stapled that onto both the wreath and the 3 to connect them.
