I saw these hot air balloon Valentine's baskets on Pinterest and thought that they would be perfect for family baskets this year. Since we are counting down to Valentine's Day using the activities jar I wanted something really special at the end.
Here's what you need:
Baskets -I got mine from Micheal's
Red striped straws- Walmart's party section
White lanterns-Walmart's party section
Red Ribbon-I had some already but I am sure I got them from Hobby or Micheal's.
Fun heart stickers-Hobby Lobby
Glue sticks, scissors, tape
I didn't use any directions-just kept looking at a picture.
First, I hot glued ribbon around the basket and put some decorative heart stickers around the basket.
Second. I glued the straws in the corner of the baskets.
Once I assembled the lanterns I decorated them with the fun heart stickers.
Putting the lanterns on the straws took some tape and a prayer. I made slits in the lantern and put the straws through. I taped the outside around the straws on one and taped the straws to the inside of the lantern on another.
A little tissue paper and some fun gifts and the hot air balloon gift baskets are done. These are so cute you could make them for any holiday or season.
