These découpage hot-air balloons really add some charm to a child’s bedroom!
- a few sheets of scrapbooking paper
- a crafting board or flat surface
- a ruler
- modge podge
- a paintbrush or découpage brush
- wooden hot-air balloon shapes from your local craft shop
- Measure carefully and cut the paper to the size of the wooden hot-air balloons – aim for 1mm smaller on all sides.
- Stick the paper down with a thin layer of modge podge and let it dry completely.
- Once dry, fix any bubbles by lifting paper away and dabbing a small amount of modge podge on with your
brush and smoothing out with your finger. Allow to dry completely.
- Repeat this process, ensuring that any bubbles or areas of paper that are lifting are filled and smoothed down as you go along.
