Balloon dog

Internet Archive:

Materials: two balloons; an air pump; scissors and a permanent marker.

We are going to use one balloon to make the dog and we need the second different color bubble just to make the nose. Inflate a balloon leaving a seven—inch flat tail (Pic 1).

Twist the first three—inch bubble (Pic 2).

Twist the second three—inch bubble (Pic 3).

Lock both ends of the chain of the first two (the first and the second) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 4). This step is marked with arrows between points A and C on the scheme.

Twist the third three—inch bubble (Pic 5). It’s the eye.

The next two bubbles we twist to make the ears. Twist the fourth soft five—inch bubble (Pic 6).

Twist the fifth soft five—inch bubble (Pic 7).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the fourth and the fifth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 8). This step is marked with arrows between points D and F on the scheme.

Lock both ends of the fourth or fifth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 9). This step is marked with arrows between points D and E on the scheme.

The next bubble we twist to make the second eye. Twist the sixth three—inch bubble (Pic 10).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last four (the third through the sixth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 11). This step is marked with arrows between points C and G on the scheme.

The next two bubbles we twist to make the front legs. Oops, this dog has no neck! Well, it makes the dog even cuter. Twist the seventh one—inch bubble (Pic 12).

Twist the eighth one—inch bubble (Pic 13).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the seventh and the eighth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 14). This step is marked with arrows between points G and H on the scheme.

Twist the ninth two—inch bubble (Pic 15). It’s the body. The body could be of any size, just make sure you have enough air left in a balloon to twist the rear legs and tail (three one—inch bubbles).

The next two bubbles we twist to make the rear legs. Twist the tenth one—inch bubble (Pic 16).

Twist the eleventh one—inch bubble (Pic 17).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the tenth and the eleventh) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 18 and 19). This step is marked with arrows between points I and J on the scheme. The rest of the balloon is the twelfth bubble. It’s the tail. You can keep it as it is.


Or you can make the funny tail (Pic 20).

Use a blue balloon to make one soft one—inch bubble. Lock both ends of the blue bubble in one lock twist. Or you can use the end of the blue balloon to make perfect round bubble with one knot (Pic 21).

Lock the blue bubble between the first and the second yellow bubbles (Pic 22 through 24). This point is marked with letter B on the scheme. Congratulations, you have made the dog. Have fun and happy twisting :)
