Online blog The Cheese Thief wants to show you how to bring some new life to those dated Christmas baubles you’ve had since the early nineties. The artist behind this DIY project got her inspiration from a Restoration Hardware hot air balloon nursery mobile and adapted it to make these beautiful Christmas tree decorations.
With the aid of some string, paper, a glue stick and some dollar store plastic ball ornaments, the maker was able to create these unique, vintage-inspired hot air balloon decorations. Her site gives you a fully illustrated step-by-step breakdown of all the instructions and materials you’ll need to create these whimsical art pieces for yourself. Or, make them for a friend or family member as an affordable holiday gift that is made with love.
These adorable little ornaments would make for some truly original tree decor, and would be perfect for that 'Around the World in Eighty Days' theme you are going for this year. If you're looking for a quick, easy holiday hobby to do with the kids this year, look no further than The Cheese Thief blog.
