we just sent this angel off to switzerland where it hopefully arrives safely at my in-laws. my daughter e. decorated the nacelle and choose all the materials. an assortment of things you could use to make such a balloon is shown in the picture below: a ball ornament, a little paper cup, trimmings, cord and little things to decorate, lots of glue and maybe needle and thread.
first i’ve glued the trimming to the ball. then, i sewed the four cords to the trimming. to attach the nacelle i’ve punched four little holes in the paper cup and and pulled the cords through them. we then decorated it with beads, leaves and flowers. the angel we cut out from a christmas card.
