Paper Hot Air Balloon Wall Art & A Makeover Update

Paper Hot Air Balloon Wall Art & A Makeover Update

Sharing is caring!

The Boy’s Bedroom Makeover is coming along so nicely. It’s already my favorite room in the house again.

A few weeks ago, I shared the full bedroom makeover plans for the boy’s room. It included crown molding, a board and batten feature wall, 2 DIY upholstered headboards, new dark blue bedding and curtains, and a few more big projects. Well, it’s nearly done and the boy’s are loving it. I’m so happy! Today, I’m excited to show you the cute paper hot air balloon wall art I just finished.

I’m sharing the full DIY for this Paper Hot Air Balloon Wall Art over at Hazel + Gold Designs. My blogger friend, Sheri, built this great site. It is full of so many great DIY’s & Crafts. You have to see the wood shim headboard she built, it’s beautiful. And this lovely resin and wood pendant DIY is fantastic!

UPDATE: You can see the Boys Bedroom Full Reveal now. I’d love for you to stop by and check it out. 🙂

6 paper hot air balloons on a Magnolia paint blue wall with white clouds. Learn How to Make Paper Hot Air Balloon Wall Art with cute double-sided scrap book paper. This tutorial is easy and works great on walls or as a mobile in a kid's room.
What do you think? Those balloons really seem to pop off that gorgeous blue wall, right?!

Just a few more notes on the room. I use Behr’s Polished Pearl Latex for all of the trim and doors. The blue wall paint is from JoAnna Gaines’ Magnolia Homes Paint line with Kilz. I think you can usually find it at Ace Hardware. The shade is Vibrant Horizon. You can use any color or pattern Double-Sided Scrapbook Paper you’d like. I think those Large Vinyl Cloud Wall Decals really help pull together the whole hot air balloon wall.

Also, you can follow this tutorial to make half of the hot air balloon for wall art. Or just use the same steps to make a full balloon to create a hanging mobile. All of the steps you need for this Paper Hot Air Balloon Wall Art and my tips for gluing are on Hazel + Gold Designs.

I just have 2 big projects left to finish; the little desk and a bit more wall art. And I’ll soon be sharing the DIY’s for building those upholstered headboards and some cool wooden curtain rods and brackets. What do you think so far?
