This week I’ll be sharing with you a fun 3D hot air balloon paper craft that’s easy to make with a free hot air balloon template. This project is not only great for your kiddos but perfect for an easy DIY shower or party decor. I’ve always thought decorating a baby nursery with a hot air balloon theme would be cute. I think when my hubby and I get around to number 3 I just might do that. Alrighty then let’s get to the supplies.

Pick out some fun colors and cut out your balloons. I use 6 but you can use up to 8 if you want more colors in your balloon. Fold all of them in half down the middle.
Add glue to one side of the fold and stack the next balloon cut out on top. Continue doing this with all the pieces. You can watch the full-length tutorial below.
My kiddies seemed to enjoy the fun paper craft with Mommy. How would you use these to decorate? Share below!
