#1 Balloon Wreath

Balloon Wreath
I originally found this idea Here but I have seen many versions of it around blog land, so here is my version. I apologize for no other how to pictures I am really bad at remembering to take them I get very engrossed in my projects.
wreath form (I used straw)
800 Water Balloons (1.00 for 100 pack dollar tree)
3 packs floral greening picks (600 about)
1 sheet tissue paper
matching scrapbook paper

Yes I used 800 balloons, You wouldn't need that many balloons but I wanted mine really full plus I used water balloons which are a lot smaller, I also added some ribbon in matching colors.
Start by taking a pick, stick the balloon in the middle and stick it into the wreath (about every other one, I used 2 different color balloons together in one pick to make it fuller.) Just do this OVER and OVER and OVER. I didn't cover all of the wreath.
I cut some tissue paper to cover the back side and just tucked it under the balloons using the picks along the inner and outer part of the circle where I stopped. (I wanted it to look a little nicer then just straw) I then cut out HAPPY BIRTHDAY with my cricut and glue/taped the letters on.
