Hot air balloon

Take a round basket and hotglue 4 sticks in a square pattern to inside of it. Then use air tubing for fish tanks and make a circle. Tape the ends of the circle together, then tape it onto the top of the sticks or cut slits in tubing. Wrap sticks and tubing with ribbon or paper ribbon. Put a balloon on top of the circle to look like a hot air balloon. Fill with treats and pictures of nice scenery from magazines glued onto 3x5 cards or maps for a special trip you never got a chance to take. For example: grapes, wine glasses, pasta, jar of spaghetti sauce & nice bread.


From Mel: What a cute idea! I never thought of turning a gift basket into a hot air balloon basket. Thanks for submitting it. :-)
