I went to a Girl's Craft Night and this is what we made. It was fun and easy to make, a great project. I used a 12" straw wreath (Michaels) and I believe 9" balloons (Wal-Mart in the party section), about 230 total. We used floral pins to attach the balloons and string to the wreath. I can't wait to use it, but I'll have to wait until July for our next birthday.
