Balloon dog


CC0
Materials: two balloons; an air pump; scissors and a permanent marker.



We are going to use two balloons to make a head of a dog. Inflate a gold (honey) balloon leaving a five—inch flat tail (Pic 1).

Twist the first soft one—inch bubble (Pic 2).

Lock both ends of the first bubble in one lock twist (Pic 3). This step is marked with arrows between points A and B on the scheme 1.

The next three bubbles you twist in the bird body fold to make the muzzle of the dog. Twist the second three—inch bubble (Pic 4).

Twist the third three—inch bubble (Pic 5).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 6). This step is marked with arrows between points B and D on the scheme 1.

Twist the fourth three—inch bubble (Pic 7).

Lock the free end (point C on the scheme 1) of the fourth bubble between the second and the third bubbles (Pic 8). You have to roll the second and the third bubbles around the fourth bubble. This step is marked with arrows between points E and C on the scheme 1.

The next two bubbles you twist to make cheeks. Twist the fifth five—inch bubble (Pic 9).

Lock both ends of the fifth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 10). This step is marked with arrows between points E and F on the scheme 1.

Twist the sixth five—inch bubble (Pic 11).

Lock both ends of the sixth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 12 through 14). This step is marked with arrows between points F and G on the scheme 1.



Twist the seventh three—inch bubble (Pic 15). It’s an eye.

Twist the eighth soft one—inch bubble (Pic 16).

Lock both ends of the eighth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 17). This step is marked with arrows between points H and I on the scheme 1. The eighth bubble helps to keep ears of the dog in a fixed position.

Twist the ninth three—inch bubble (Pic 18).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last three (the seventh through the ninth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 19 through 21). This step is marked with arrows between points J and G on the scheme 1. The rest of the balloon is the tenth bubble. It’s the neck of the dog.



The second balloon we use to make big floppy ears. Inflate a white balloon leaving a six—inch flat tail (Pic 22).

Twist the first six—inch bubble (Pic 23).

Lock both ends of the first bubble in one lock twist (Pic 24). This step is marked with arrows between points A and B on the scheme 2.

Twist the second soft one—inch bubble (Pic 25).

Lock both ends of the second bubble in one lock twist (Pic 26). This step is marked with arrows between points B and C on the scheme 2.

Twist the third three—inch bubble (Pic 27).

Twist the 4th soft one—inch bubble (Pic 28).

Lock both ends of the fourth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 29). This step is marked with arrows between points D and E on the scheme 2. The fourth bubble helps to keep ears in a fixed position.

Twist the fifth three—inch bubble (Pic 30).

Twist the sixth soft one—inch bubble (Pic 31).

Lock both ends of the 6th bubble in one lock twist (Pic 32). This step is marked with arrows between points F and G on the scheme 2.

Twist the seventh six—inch bubble (Pic 33).

Lock both ends of the 7th bubble in one lock twist (Pic 34). This step is marked with arrows between points G and H on the scheme 2. The rest of the balloon is the eighth bubble.

Cut off the eighth bubble and tie off the end (Pic 35). You have made the ears.

Attach the ears to the head of the dog. Lock the fourth white bubble around the eighth gold bubble (Pic 36 through 40).





Fix all bubbles in proper positions. Use a permanent marker to draw the face of the dog (Pic 41). Congratulations, you have made the head of the dog.

You can attach this head to different bodies or hats. Twist the eleventh gold soft one—inch bubble at the end of the balloon (Pic 42).

Make a four legs body (see the body 1 and etc.) without a neck (Pic 43).

Lock the eleventh gold bubble between the front legs and the body (Pic 44).

Lock both ends of the eleventh gold bubble in one lock twist (Pic 45).

Congratulations, you have made the dog (Pic 46 through 48). Have fun and happy twisting :)
