Love Hot Air Balloon Decoration

Love is in the air, can you feel it? I’d be lying if I didn’t say I mostly feel the -20 degrees and the snow blowing in my face first, but as February quickly approaches the little red cinnamon hearts will call my name and I’ll be set for Valentines Day!

Today the May Arts Ribbon Design Team has got together loads of Valentine’s Day ideas to get you in the mood!

Sweet Love Hot Air Balloon

I made this sweet Love Hot Air Balloon Decoration, in place of a traditional wreath this year (However, the other door is sporting last years Valentine Pom Pom wreath).  I got the idea from a Valentines Printable I found on The Creative Paige, it was just so cute I couldn’t resist!

Since I got a new Ryobi Jig Saw just before Christmas, I’ve became totally addicted to sawing up everything in sight!

I cut the love balloon and basket from 1/4″ hardboard, and drilled small holes in each for the May Arts Ribbon 1/8″ Grey Faux Suede to attach the pieces together.

For the little basket, I weaved together strips of May Arts Ribbon 5/8″ Ivory Canvas and hot glued the edges to the back side. The top edge of the basket is trimmed with May Arts Ribbon Large Grey Pom Poms.
