Tile Inspired Hot Air Balloon


As I posted a while ago, I wanted to recreate a vintage HAB that I've seen on some ceramic tiles. So here is a long awaited finished "Tile Inpired HAB".

It is made using papermache, embroidery floss, handmade paper (for sash) and cardstock for the fan circles. I didn't make the netting from scratch but to the first person to guess what I used, I'll offer you 15% off the price if you want to purchase it! Send your guess to me at


  1. You have done a lovely job with this baloon.

  2. Did you perhaps use fishnet stockings for the net?

  3. Sorry, fishnets weren't used. But not a bad idea for next time. Thanks!
