DIY Balloon Wreath Decoration - Party Tutorial

by Jo Williams November 08, 2018


I love cheerful and fun Christmas party decorations and they don't come much merrier than this cool balloon wreath! Put it on your front door or above your mantle, it will stay looking good for at least a couple of weeks or more.

This balloon wreath is incredibly quick and simple to make; all the materials you need are a length of wire, a few handfuls of balloons and a pump - that is it!

DIY Balloon Wreath


-  4ft length of wire - I used 8ft of floral wire and doubled it to make it stronger

- 5" balloons in a mix of colours (approx 40 total)

- Ideally a balloon pump as 5" balloons are hard to inflate by mouth

Balloon Wreath Tutorial

Firstly inflate all of your balloons, it is important to underinflated them to keep them a nice round plump shape like baubles. Inflate them to a variety of sizes between 2" and 3.5".

As you can see I doubled the wire to make the wreath stronger. Tie each balloon directly on to the wire.

Continue to add balloons, tying them to the wire and then pushing them together, continue until all the balloons have been added. Once completed attach the two ends to form a circle by winding them together. If the ends are sharp then cover them with some gaffer tape. Move or manipulate your balloons to ensure all gaps are covered and then shape your wire into a wreath shape.

I've given instructions to make a wreath but using the same technique you can make a table garland, a mini arch or even balloon garland letters or numbers; simply bend the wire into the shape you require.

Perfect Advent Calendar

Easy to assemble and look fab. My children were super excited to see these and eager every day to open them up!


Product arrived very quickly and was as expected in terms of size and colour

Gold metalic baloons

Ive bought these a few times. Perfect colour never burst ! Exactly what we need.

I have not used these balloons yet. They have been purchased in advance for a Birthday Party next year. However, delivery was quick, they were packaged great and the quality appears to be very good. I did try to blow up one of them to see how it is but I found it very difficult so I would recommend getting a balloon bump to do this, preferably an electric one.

I haven't used these balloons yet. They have been ordered in advance for a party next year. However, the delivery was quick, packaged very well and they appear to be of good quality. I am very confident that come May 2020 when they will be used, they will be a great success at my party.
