Hot Air Balloon Ornaments

Inspired by Restoration Hardware’s hot air balloon nursery mobile (which is adorable, by the way), one crafty mom “who loves to make cute things with minimal effort and cost” (aka The Cheese Thief) thought up this creative idea.

The Cheese Thief even provides step-by-step photos and instructions on her site.
