I wanted to make a wreath using these waxy blow up balloons I had from the Japanese dollar store. They come three to a package, and I had 3 packages. The largest is about 8 inches in diameter, for reference. I covered a foam wreath form using wire ribbon, then blew up the balloons. These are like origami balloons -- they blow up, and hold their shape pretty well, but some air does escape as there is no way to seal them. I then glued the balloons to the wreath form, and added some beach-y keen ribbon to use as a wreath holder.
Too bad I didn't think of this in time for the Beach Blanket Bingo party!
