Basic Balloon Art

Step 1

Balloon Art is not something that you can pick up in a second - and don't expect yourself to. You have to have a clue. Firstly attempt to inflate the balloon by mouth...then give up and use a pump.

Step 2

Leave part of the balloon uninflated - so it won't pop when you start twisting.

Step 3

Starting at the knotted end, twist three bubbles - one for the nose and one each for the ears.

Step 4

Take both the ears in one hand, and the nose and the rest of the balloon in the other.

Step 5

Close your eyes...and TWIST. Everything should pretty much stay in place without your help, if it doesn't twist a couple more times to get it to set.

Step 6

Repeat the process twice. First for front legs and a neck, secondly for back legs, abdomen and tail.

Step 7

Finally, release your baby balloon giraffe into the wild.
