Birthday Celebration Wreath

Last weekend we celebrated Kaden’s 7th birthday! I decided to make a birthday wreath for the front door. I found this wreath on Pinterest.

I think it came out fantastic!  I bought the balloons at Dollar Tree, the straw wreath at Michael’s (with a 40% off coupon). The pipe cleaners and the letter K also came from Michael’s. The letter is made of foam. I found it where the felt and foam supplies are.

I used a small round circle picture hanger that I had on hand and a small cup hook (also on hand) to hold the letter on and be able to change it for each of our birthdays!

The only thing I did different, instead of using greening pins as suggested I bought a package of 200+ small paperclips from Dollar Tree and bent them open and cut them in half to make my own pins. I also used a regular hammer to hammer the pins in instead of a rubber mallet.

And speaking of birthday celebrations. Look at this glitzed up birthday candle! Is this cool or what? The directions to make it can be found here!
