A New Kind of Evergreen Wreath
I headed over to the section with all the latex balloons to see if the inspiration would continue. At first the balloon column kits caught my eye to compliment the nutcracker. But right next to those kits was the Balloon Arch Decorating Strip and my wheels got spinning. Since I was wanting to create a welcoming porch scene, I definitely needed a wreath! I picked up several sizes of green and red balloons, the arch strip, some red curling ribbon and a large red bow. A tip on picking out latex balloons, if you do not see a color you want in the prepackaged bags, you can get the individual balloons in the bins for the same price as the bagged.
I got to work blowing up all the green balloons first. I bought 2 sizes just to add a little interest and fill in the wreath better. I laid the arch strip on the floor in a circle about the size I thought I wanted- but did not cut it yet, just to be sure it was a good size as I began to fill it up. I began placing the green balloons on the strip, just pull the knot through the hole, and left a few spots open along the way to add the red balloons.
