Birthday Wreath

This easy, colorful and fun DYI is just the thing to do if you are looking to start a birthday tradition for your child.  I made this birthday wreath for my child’s 1st birthday party and I hung it on our front door.  Almost everyone had something to say about it.  I love it because you can choose whatever colors you’d like and the center decorative item is easily changeable.  I even thought about using it as a “special occasion” wreath vs. just for birthdays, by putting Christmas decor or Valentine’s Day decor instead of the 1.  The total cost was less than $20!


What You Need:

  • 6″ rolls of tulle (I used 5 colors but you have the freedom to do any color combo, of course!)
  • Scissors
  • 10″ or 12″ round styrofoam wreath form
  • Measuring tape
  • Cardboard Number
  • Paint
  • String
  • Hot glue gun
  • Plastic hanger

  1. Cut tulle into 16 in. strips.
  2. Tie the tulle on to your wreath form using a double knot. Make sure the ends are even.
  3. Continue to do this until wreath is covered.
  4. If you are wanting a center piece, paint/decorate centerpiece (1 shown in photo)
  5. Using the hot glue gun, carefully glue the string to the back of the number, making a loop at the top.
  6. Loop centerpiece on hanger then at wreath.
  7. BOOM! You are done and extra awesome!

***Please note, this is a Pinterest project.  This is the wreath I personally did, pictured, but the idea is not  one of my originals. ***
