Hot Air Balloons | Unique Ramadan Decorations

I was searching for some lanterns to update our Ramadan decorations and came across these hot air balloons from Oriental Trading. I loved them! They were also well priced at 3 for $11.99. They came in blue, yellow and red, and my initial intention was to spray paint them all gold and silver. I sprayed the blue one first in gold and ended up not liking it one bit. I sprayed glitter spray on the yellow and red one and loved them! But, the red one had a manufacturing defect and instead of sending a single replacement, Oriental Trading replaced the whole order!! That was truly a gift because now I had a second chance at spraying the blue one with glitter spray I got from Michaels craft store. I needed two cans of glitter spray, but the second can was defective and sprayed in clumps rather than a nice even spray, so the blue one didn’t turn out quite as nice as the yellow and red ones. I hung them in our family room along with our other Ramadan decorations. They add a dramatic festive feel, and we love them. Added perk is that they collapse down to paper thin for easy storage.
