Learn to Make a Hot Air Balloon Ornament!

Join me for some festive felty fun with the Up Up & Away Ornament Class!

This hot air balloon makes me think of sunshine, rainbows and blue sky! It's got a fun construction that makes it light and airy looking and the embroidery has a vintage glass ornament vibe. Yay! Up up and away!

Tools and Materials needed:

This ornament is made with wool blend felt, embroidery floss, fiberfill and a few other embellishments. You'll need craft glue, glue stick, an embroidery needle, disappearing ink pen, and scissors. For this class you will not need a sewing machine.

Raid your stash, shop local or opt for my felt pack, or purchase materials through my collaboration with Benzie Design in their Etsy shop.
