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:


1. Hot Air Balloon Kit, $65 Craft Shmaft
2. Blue Nursery Art, $18 Etsy Seller Indigo Rain
3. DIY Paper Hot Air Balloon, PaperMatrix
4. Hot Air Balloon Mobile Kit, $18 Etsy Seller Especially Paper
5. Wall Art Tutorial, Just Between Friends


6. Dream Catcher/Mobile, Loflov
7. Felt Hot Air Balloons Tutorial, Cutesy Craft
8. Hot Air Balloon Centerpiece, Basic Grey
9. Hot Air Balloon Photobooth DIY, Oh Happy Day
10. Mobile Tutorial and Pattern, Craftiness Is Not Optional
