hello kitty hot air balloon
A very fun project for all ages! You can turn it into a pinata or just a decoration.
TO MAKE SMALL HOT AIR BALLOONS. Great for party favors
Use water balloons & sm yogurt cups or shaving cream covers (baskets)instead.
PAPIER MACHE PASTE-
Combine 1/2 cup flour &
2 cups cold water. Add that to a saucepan of 2 cups boiling water & bring to a boil. Remove from heat & stir in 3 TBS sugar.
This was my 1st ever papier mache creation. It was so much fun. I want to papier mache everything!!!
For the hanger I hot glued a hook on the top days later but do it now don't wait like I did
FOR THE HOT AIR BALLOON NECK-
I hot glued a cut sour cream container. You can glue or tape instead & use whatever size container that works for you.
Cut out a basket from another plastic container. Or if you can make the neck & basket from one go for it.
Cover the balloon & sour cream containers w newspaper & (pm)paste.
Allow to dry.
Paint or add crepe paper or tissue paper to decorate.
Punch holes into the "neck" & "basket".
Attach basket to neck with string (or yarn, ribbon).
IF YOU ARE MAKING THIS INTO A PINATA MAKE SURE THE INSIDE IS DRY BEFORE ADDING CANDY.
