I decided to make a hot air balloon lampshade to fit the theme for my son’s bedroom, it was very easy – involving some knitting and sewing.
6.5mm Knitting Needles
Chunky Wool / Yarn
Waxed Cotton (for strings)
Sew together from top corners of basket and along the bottom to make square basket shape. I inserted a slightly smaller same shaped piece of thin card inside, to make the basket more rigid and square.
At each corner tie a length of waxed cotton to attach to the lampshade, to make your hot air balloon.
I also decorated my basket with extra wool and put in some animal passengers!
