Materials: a balloon; an air pump and a permanent marker.

Inflate a balloon leaving an eight—inch flat tail (Pic 1).

We are going to use one balloon to make two dogs. We have to twist twenty four bubbles. All bubbles should be of the same size. It could be up to one—inch. Twist the first bubble. It’s the tail of the first dog (Pic 2).

The next four bubbles we twist to make the rear legs of the first dog. Twist the second bubble (Pic 3).

Twist the third bubble (Pic 4).

Twist the fourth bubble (Pic 5).

Twist the fifth bubble (Pic 6).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last four (the second through the fifth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 7). This step is marked with arrows between points A and B on the scheme.

Twist the sixth bubble (Pic 8). It’s the body of the first dog.

The next four bubbles we twist to make the front legs of both dogs. It will create the illusion that dogs are hugging! Twist the 7th bubble (Pic 9).

Twist the 8th bubble (Pic 10).

Twist the ninth bubble (Pic 11).

Twist the tenth bubble (Pic 12).

Lock both ends of the chain of last four (the seventh through the tenth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 13). This step is marked with arrows between points C and E on the scheme.

Twist the eleventh bubble (Pic 14). It’s the neck of the first dog.

Twist the twelfth bubble (Pic 15).

Twist the thirteenth bubble (Pic 16).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the twelfth and the thirteenth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 17). This step is marked with arrows between points F and G on the scheme.

Twist the fourteenth bubble (Pic 18). It’s the muzzle of the first dog. We have made the first dog. Now we are making the second dog.

Twist the fifteenth bubble (Pic 19). It’s the muzzle of the second dog.

Twist the sixteenth bubble (Pic 20).

Twist the seventeenth bubble (Pic 21).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the sixteenth and the seventeenth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 22). This step is marked with arrows between points H and I on the scheme. We have made the head of the second dog. Hey, our dogs are already kissing!

Twist the eighteenth bubble (Pic 23). It’s the neck of the second dog.

We have to attach the neck bubble to the front legs. Force the rest of the balloon in the loop of front legs and lock the free end of the 18th bubble between the eighth and the ninth bubbles (Pic 24 and 25). This step is marked with red arrows between points J and D on the scheme.


Twist the nineteenth bubble (Pic 26). It’s the body of the second dog.

The next four bubbles we twist to make the rear legs of the second dog. Twist the twentieth bubble (Pic 27).

Twist the twenty-first bubble (Pic 28).

Twist the twenty-second bubble (Pic 29).

Twist the twenty-third bubble (Pic 30). The rest of the balloon is the twenty-fourth bubble.

Lock both ends of the chain of the last four (the twentieth through the twenty-third) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 31 through 33). This step is marked with arrows between points K and L on the scheme. Use a permanent marker to draw faces of the dogs. Congratulations, you have made two kissing dogs! Have fun and happy twisting :)
