My creative space...

I have pledged my obsession with Pinterest on previous occassions.  At the moment it is my go-to source for party inspiration and when I saw these gorgeously colourful balloon wreaths I just could not help myself.

(as an aside - I used to be able to embed images straight from pinterest onto the blog but since they rejigged pinterest when I try to do it now it asks for a width and height of the image and since I know nothing about codes and whatnot I really dont know what to put in those boxes.  Anyone come across this... and know what to do about it???!!!)

I have decided they are the perfect tv craft - mindlessly sitting there watching Glee pinning balloons into styrafoam is quite therapeutic!

Grab your bags of balloons and a bunch of pins...

...stick the pin through the neck of the balloon so it flops both ways and simply pin it into your styrofoam wreath.

Clearly four bags of 45 balloons is not going to do it so some more will be purchased tomorrow.

But look how pretty it is.  And with two parties at our house coming up soon, it's the perfect party front door treatment I think!


  1. Wow - takes loads of balloons. But really effective!

  2. How excellent!

    I keep forgetting about Pinterest; just as well too I think - there aren't enough hours in the day!

  3. Wow that's a great idea! Pinterest is great for inspiration but I always seem to be adding things to my 'To Do' list and I agree with Vic there just aren't enough hours in the day!

  4. Glee, balloon wreaths, pinterest and party prep.....throw in some champagne and you have my perfect night in ! Love these x

  5. awesome!! mindless craft at it's best x
