Birthday Balloon Wreath

When I saw this balloon wreath on Pinterest, I knew I had to recreate it...
It took less than hour to create, and it cost under $10!! Gotta love that!
You can check out the tutorial on how to make one here. I did the same thing, except my wreath form was Styrofoam, and found at the dollar store (along with all the balloons!).
The other difference is that I decided to add colored pipe cleaners in my version. I cut them in half, and spiraled them around a pencil to form a "spring" look. They stuck right into the foam! The perfect way to greet guests as they arrive for a birthday party, don't ya think?

Enjoy your day!

I have all the supplies to make this except those greening pins. I can't seem to find them anywhere! Where did you find yours??

I love this. Planning on making one tomorrow, did you use assorted balloons? I just don't think I like the way the 12" would look because they seem so floppy.
