We all know how expensive American Girl accessories are, and when I did a search for hot air balloon for my daughter's doll, I see I can get the real AG balloon set for *only* $199 dollars. Pft!
I went to the craft store and bought a wicker basket, a paper lantern, a few wooden dowels and some ribbon, and for less than $10, my daughter has her own hot air balloon for her American Girl doll. Sure, it's not as fancy as their version, but it suits my kid just fine :)
The only thing I would have done differently is found a more square basket instead of a rectangular one so the doll fits inside better.
What doll crafts have you been working on lately?
