Shut The Front Door!

Hello Friends,
Sometimes you just have to get crafty. In fact, there are times it is just necessary. I have been inspired by all of the ideas I have seen on Pinterest. I had to make a balloon wreath and I have to say it is kind of addictive. I was able to find all of my supplies at WalMart. It may look difficult or time consuming but it really isn't. And this is a perfect craft to start and stop because there is no glue involved and that is what I really wanted. No burned fingers or strings of glue for this project.

You will need:
A styrofoam or straw wreath
Ribbon to wrap the wreath
Floral pins
Ribbon optional

All you have to do is make clusters of balloons and pin into the wreath. There is no right or wrong way to do this. You just have to grab a glass of sweet tea, put on some music and just literally get your craft...on. You will pin over and over. It is a good idea to take a break, twist the wreath around and start in a different place after a while. It's kind of funny that you can begin to see your own pinning pattern, so take a break, twist and turn is a good method here. You decide how full you want it. And if you want to add ribbons you simply make a loop of ribbin and pin it in. Now this would be so perfect for a craft party!
