1. Felt Mobile

And for those wondering how to make something similar, you will need a laundry basket, a large balloon, heavy yarn or lightweight rope, scissors, and tape.
Those round paper lanterns make for fantastic balloons for hot air balloon crafts. You simply add a basket and ribbon and you'll have one cute nursery decor faster than you can say "fly." Design variation: draw or paint on the lantern before assembling your hot air balloon.
4. Herb Planters
Here is an interesting way to make floating centerpieces for a party. These hot air balloons are hanging planters. They also double as number cards for tables. Clever, right? To make these, you will need bouncing balls, potted herbs, square tin pots , acrylic paint, brush, and twine.
5. Folded Paper

If you are quite skillful with crochet needles, you will want to look into these darling hot air balloons. The tutorial after the link will show you how to make the balls and the cute baskets. You can then hang them together to form a mobile or use individually as gifts.
How gorgeous! Not only do I love the gold details, I also think the teeny baskets are too adorable for words. And because Christmas ornaments come in many sizes, you can also go non-conventional with your mini hot air balloon. To make this, you will need Christmas balls, mini baskets, paint, glitter paint, chains, and other embellishments you can think of.
These balloons look mighty complicated to make but there is a video tutorial for you to check out, don't worry. I suggest that you make these in pretty patterned paper. They'd look so beautiful hanging from your ceiling.
9. Treats Centerpiece
Your DIY hot air balloon doesn't have to be floating. You can make one that will play host to candies and other treats for your party. You will need paper, Styrofoam ball, pins and bamboo skewers to make this lovely party centerpiece.
