Kara's Party Ideas Party Tutorials - Fabric Wreath & Balloon Wreath Tutorial | Kara's Party Ideas

Welcome to all of you visiting from Studio 5’s segment today! Here are the tutorials I promised {wrapping paper favor bag tutorial coming later on this week}. Photography by Lyndsey Fagerlund.

Wreaths are a fun party decoration/accessory. They can be a great alternative to the traditional party banner {and can be given away to the guest of honor, birthday girl, mama to be, etc at the end of the party}!
This wreath is so simple, yet so cute! Match any party theme, baby shower, bridal shower or holiday party using coordinating fabric…
You will need:
1 styrofoam wreath
Approximately 70- 2 1/2″x 15″ fabric strips

It really is quite simple. Take your fabric strips one by one and tie them around your styrofoam wreath using a double knot…

Do this all the way around the wreath {alternating between fabric patters if you would like}…

And, viola!

Isn’t this wreath adorable? {Sneak peek at my recent superhero party by the way.}
You will need:
1 round styrofoam wreath
Approximately 160 regular sized balloons
160 straight pins

Step one: Take a balloon and insert a straight pin into the base of the “bulb”…

Step two: Insert the straight pin into the wreath, attaching the balloon…

Step three: Repeat steps one and two until the styrofoam wreath is covered {alternating between colors if you wish}…

And that’s it! Match any party theme using coordinating colors! So fun.
