Lego Balloon Wreath
- PVC Tubing
- 2/4 inch coupling
- Pipe cutters
- White electrical tape
- Yellow balloons
- Black Sharpie Marker
- Create a structural base using PVC tubing. Simply immerse one end of the tube into boiling water to soften and insert into the coupling. Repeat on the other side of the tube. Use the electrical tape all the way around the tube for grip.
- To build out your LEGO balloon wreath on top of the hoop, start by creating balloon duplets or double clusters. Take two similarly sized balloons filled with air (not helium) cross their necks twice, and tie them off. Then, hold the middle of the duplet, where the balloon necks are tied together, against the hoop and secure with fishing line. Continue to add balloon duplets, using the same fishing line, until your hoop is covered.
- Using a black sharpie market, draw the faces on the balloons (alternatively, you can purchase stickers on Etsy).
Pull it all together in just a few easy steps.

But First, Party!, & Bonjour Fete share their top tips for pulling off this event.
Get creative with your cake. Our favorite party detail was the birthday cake that looked like it was made from actual Legos!
Don’t be intimidated by DIYs…you can do it! For the “Everything is Awesome” sign, we simply used an acrylic box and filled them with black, yellow, & white yarn pom poms and wrote the saying on the front of the box (you can always purchase custom stickers on Etsy or make them on a Cricut machine).
Use LEGOs as “confetti” for decoration, as well as a fun party activity for the kids!
Use graphic gift wrap as a table runner.
To create the faces on the yellow balloon wreath, the easiest option is to use black Sharpie markers. Alternatively, you can order custom stickers on Etsy or make your own faces using a Cricut machine!
