A birthday wreath made from cupcake liner flowers and paper plate flowers is the perfect decoration for your front door, and something you can certainly hang in the birthday girl's room afterwards as a nice reminder. Yesterday was my daughter's ninth birthday, and the last opportunity to make something like this, since double digits would be twice the work! While this looks fairly straight forward, it is time consuming and not something one could whip up at the last minute. Even the night before was stretching it, believe me!
Today is the first day of the Jewish month of Av, ushering in an intense nine day period of mourning before our most solemn holiday, Tisha B'Av. So while posting festive birthday projects doesn't seem quite appropriate, I thought I'd post just this one, since the number nine happens to be quite fitting!
