Add some colour and fun to your child’s room with these lovely decorative hot air balloons. Children can decorate their own in their favourite colours or with their names.
Below is a great fun tutorial which will keep the kids busy during the summer thanks to www.cutfoam.co.uk the replacement sofa cushions experts.
You will need:
Various coloured foam sheets
Cut out two balloon shapes, one large and one small.
Cut out the patterns for the balloons using different coloured foam. We have made some zigzags for the large balloon and stripes for the small one.
Arrange them on the balloons and glue in place once you are happy. Trim any overhanging bits.
Cut out two rectangles for the baskets and four thin strips to attach them to the balloons.
Glue the strips to the backs of the balloons and to the backs of the baskets, as shown.
The balloons can be placed on the wall with blue tack. They could also be hung from the ceiling with fishing line if you make a small hole in the top of the balloon. Have extra fun by cutting out photos of family and placing them in the baskets as passengers or see what else you can come up with.
