The sun is shining, the air is warmer (slightly) and I am ready for spring. Yay! I can’t wait for the ground to thaw and the flowers to grow. But until then, I will have to settle for just filing my home with bright and cheery spring decor. And my seasonal decorating always starts at the front door. This time I didn’t go for a traditional wreath, instead I made this beautiful Hot Air Balloon Spring Wreath to brighten my door.
After making the giant paper ornaments for my front door a couple years ago, I have been thinking about doing the same thing with a hot air balloon. After waiting way too long to make it happen, I decided it would be the perfect DIY spring wreath for this year. Doesn’t it just make you think of warm days and having fun on the grass?
As a kid I always loved seeing hot air balloons in the sky. I remember driving the ever-so-long (but really only 2 hour) drive to visit my grandparents and getting so excited when we say hot air balloons peeking over the mountains. It just seemed like a fairy tale to me. And what is spring but the same fairy tale of warm after a long winter.
And while this looks like a complicated wreath, it really was so easy to make. It only took me about an hour and then I had a beautiful hot air balloon spring wreath to welcome in the sunshine! But don’t be fooled, it was still cold, but at least the sun was shining. I think that is a good sign that spring is on it’s way.
And maybe if we all wish together really hard, spring will be here quick this year!
