Hot Air Balloon Details

Hello All!

Sorry, I didn't get a chance to totally finish the Hot Air Balloon as I hoped. I've been trying to crank out CHA samples and keep up my blog so the finishing touches will just have to wait.  LOL!

Instead of a stepped out tutorial I did a video tour of the Hot Air Ballon and talked about the details of how it was made.  I hope the video helps those of you who want to try this fun project.

Here we go....




The supply list for everything I used is below...



Supplies Found At The Craft Store:
Glass Christmas Ornament
Wire
Brads
Fabric for Sandbags 

Supplies Found At Inspiration Emporium:









Thanks For Coming By!  See Y'all Soon!

  1. Hi Jim,
    Once again I love your work, the hot air balloon is absolutely spectacular. I don't know how you come up with them let alone figuring out how to put it together but I continue to be amazed :) p.s. I don't know if you are aware or not but when I clicked on your name over on the G45 blog the link took me to your old typepad site? don't know if it matters to you or not but thought I would mention it just in case. I knew where to find you anyway LOL, happy crafting and looking forward to your CHA projects! Valerie

  2. Jim, Jim, Jim, Another amazing project! Why can't my brain think of things like these? Somehow the good Lord blessed you with a brain that doesn't seem to quit coming up with idea after idea. You are so kind to share it with all of us. Thanks!

  6. Love, love, love it! The only thing that it needs is Santa, his bag of toys and a tree. You are going to give Hallmark a run for their money!

  7. Fabo, Jimbo!!! Loved seeing how you made this awesome project! I really, really like it and just might have to run over to M's to get a ball ornament. It really does look easy, peasy...and not to pricey. I hope you didn't buy up all the faucet knobs and clock keys...need those, too.

    Thank you so much for the video!! I know it takes time to make and then upload so it's all the more appreciated. YOU ROCK!!

  8. Hot air balloons are so wonderful anyway, but the one you came up with is outstanding. Steampunk is so imaginatie--right up your alley. Your idea with Santa with goggles and his toy sack is perfect. When you have that finished, please remember to show us all. Love the design--perfect job.
