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


Inflate the brown balloon leaving a half—inch flat tail (Pic 1).

Slightly deflate the balloon to make it soft before you tie the knot. We are going to twist four soft bubbles of the same size. Tie both ends of the brown balloon (Pic 2). This step is marked with arrows between points A and E on the scheme 1.

Split the balloon on two bubbles of the same size and lock both ends of the first (the second) bubble in one lock twist (Pic 3). This step is marked with arrows between points C and A on the scheme 1.

Split the first bubble on two bubbles of the same size and lock both ends of the first (the third) bubble in one lock twist (Pic 4). This step is marked with arrows between points C and B on the scheme 1.

Split the 2nd bubble on two bubbles of the same size and lock both ends of the second (the fourth) bubble in one lock twist (Pic 5). This step is marked with arrows between points C and D on the scheme 1.

Force and fix the 3rd bubble half way in to the loop of the 1st bubble. Force and fix the 4th bubble half way in to the loop of the 2nd bubble (Pic 6 and 7). We have made the head of the owl.


Use the yellow balloon to make the base of the hat, eyes and the beak. Inflate the yellow balloon leaving a two—inch flat tail (Pic 8).

Twist the first two—inch bubble (Pic 9).

Twist the second soft three—inch bubble (Pic 10).

Lock both ends of the second bubble in one lock twist (Pic 11). This step is marked with arrows between points B and C on the scheme 2. It’s the eye bubble.

Twist the third bubble about two—inch shorter than the size of the hat you want to make (Pic 12).

Twist the fourth soft three—inch bubble (Pic 13).

Lock both ends of the fourth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 14). This step is marked with arrows between points D and E on the scheme 2. It’s the second eye bubble.

Twist the fifth two—inch bubble (Pic 15). The rest of the balloon is the sixth bubble.

Lock both ends of the sixth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 16). This step is marked with arrows between points G and F on the scheme 2. It’s the beak.

Lock both ends of the chain of the first six (the first through the sixth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 17). This step is marked with arrows between points A and F on the scheme 2.

Lock the sixth yellow beak bubble between brown bubbles (Pic 18 through 22). Force the second yellow bubble inside of the loop of the third brown bubble. And force the fourth yellow bubble inside of the loop of the fourth brown bubble. Use a permanent marker to draw the eyes.





Congratulations, you have made the hat (Pic 23). Have fun and happy twisting :)
