To instantly add a pop of fun, a splash of vibrant color, and a festive element to your home, this Inspirations & Celebrations Tutorial teaches you how to easily (and affordably) create a DIY Balloon Wreath that you can display year-round or during special occasions (like birthdays and parties).
DIY Balloon Wreath Supplies:
1. For this project, you will need approximately 1200 5″ Latex Balloons. For the best prices, purchase wholesale latex balloons that offered in bulk packages (144 pcs/bag). You can either choose a pre-arranged assortment of colors (pastels, neons, etc.), or buy bags of balloons in individual colors, to suit your home decor or party theme. Featured in the Balloon Wreath shown here, a trio of primary colors (Ruby Red Balloons, Canary Yellow Balloons, Navy Blue Balloons) were chosen. This particular Balloon Wreath required 9 bags (144 pc/bag) of 5″ Latex Balloons.
2. 2 Bags of Rubber Bands (clear is best, if you can find it) are needed to create small balloon clusters. Use small, thin rubber bands if you can source them. Most bags of rubber bands come with assorted sizes. If that is all you can find, it’s not a problem.
3. 1 Wreath Hook is required to easily hang the Balloon Wreath to your door.
4. 100 Greening Pins (2 packages) are needed to attach the Balloon Clusters to the Balloon Wreath.
5. 1 Styrofoam Wreath Form (the wreath form shown here is 14″) will act as the base of your Balloon Wreath.
DIY Balloon Wreath Instructions:
1. Create a small cluster containing 12 balloons (all facing the same direction). Securely wrap a rubber band around the cluster, in between the neck of the balloon and top of the balloon. Continue doing this process until all the balloons are used up.
2. To adhere the balloon cluster to the wreath form, attach the balloon cluster to the front of the wreath with a greening pin.
3. Continue attaching each balloon cluster to the wreath (starting with the top of the wreath surface), going in a circular direction. Then fill-in along the outer and inner rims of the wreath form, ensuring that the white wreath form is no longer visible.
4. After all the balloon clusters have been securely adhered to the balloon wreath, you are ready to add the wreath hook to the back. Simply push the prongs into the styrofoam balloon wreath form, and you’re done.
This entire project takes approximately 1-2 hours to do. For less than $30, you can easily and quickly create a beautiful DIY Balloon Wreath that you can proudly display on your door for years to come. Enjoy!
