Description: We got some Regolit light shades and have been decorating them to suit our style. We did a hot air balloon for the spare bedroom, this was inspired by something my Dad had seen once but unfortunately he doesn’t remember where!
This was painted with water colours following the lines of the Regolit paper and a small basket found in the back of a cupboard was attached with some string (dyed in tea) and little sandbags (made from scraps of material) were attached to achieve the hot air balloon look.
