How can I make a hotair balloon that will hold up to snow?



I would like it big enough to put it whiskey barrel. So the whiskey barrel looks like the basket part of the balloon. I don't care what its made out of.

    A hot air balloon is basically a "beach ball" with a long skirt.
    You could build one using a tomato cage as a base and a large ball for the round part of the form. Cover with fabric or paper mache type material to build your balloon.... but the liquid would have to be a glue that does not break down when wet.
    A "rip stop" nylon is good for outdoors, does not fade easily... and is light weight.
    Check on Pinterest and see if there are ideas there

    An exercise ball would be a great size for the balloon part.
