Decor & DIY Inspiration: Hot Air Balloons

My kids find hot air balloons quite fascinating. I don't know what it is, but I'm with them on this - they are a little alien looking and completely symbolize fantasy.

Without being nuts and inflating a hot air balloon inside the house (true story, it has been done!), or covering our walls and ceilings with them, we've been wanting to make a hot air balloon-inspired craft or add a touch of them to our decor. 

I got a little nuts on the internet surfing looking for ideas, which made me stay up until 2am. Here is what I found:
