How to make one balloon elephant


CC0
Materials: a balloon; an air pump and a permanent marker.


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

Twist the first five—inch bubble. It’s a trunk of the elephant (Pic 2).

The next two bubbles you twist to make the eyes. Twist the second one—inch bubble (Pic 3).

Twist the third one—inch bubble (Pic 4).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the second and the third) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 5). This step is marked with arrows between points A and B on the scheme.

The next two bubbles you twist to make the ears. Twist the fourth six—inch bubble (Pic 6).

Lock both ends of the fourth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 7). This step is marked with arrows between points B and C on the scheme.

Twist the fifth six—inch bubble (Pic 8).

Lock both ends of the fifth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 9 through 11). This step is marked with arrows  between points C and D on the scheme.



The next two bubbles you twist to make the front legs. Twist the sixth two—inch bubble (Pic 12).

Twist the seventh two—inch bubble (Pic 13).

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

Twist the eighth two—inch bubble (Pic 15). It’s the body.

The next two bubbles you twist to make the rear legs. Twist the ninth two—inch bubble (Pic 16).

Twist the tenth two—inch bubble (Pic 17).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the ninth and the tenth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 18 and 19). This step is marked with arrows between points F and G on the scheme. The rest of the balloon is the eleventh bubble. It’s the tail. Bend the trunk (the first bubble) to shape it the way you like it.


Use the permanent marker to draw the eyes (Pic 20). Congratulations, you have made the elephant. Have fun and happy twisting :)
