Materials: a balloon; an air pump and scissors.
We are going to make a crown for a doll. Inflate a balloon leaving a nine—inch flat tail (Pic 1).
We have to twist eight soft half—inch bubbles for this sculpture. It’s important to twist all bubbles of the same size. Twist the first bubble (Pic 2).
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 five bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 7). This step is marked with arrows between points A and C on the scheme.
Twist the sixth bubble (Pic 8).
Twist the seventh bubble (Pic 9).
Lock both ends of the seventh bubble in one lock twist (Pic 10). This step is marked with arrows between points D and E on the scheme.
Twist the eighth bubble (Pic 11).
Lock the free end of the eighth bubble between the first and the second bubbles (Pic 12). This step is marked with arrows between points F and B on the scheme. The rest of the balloon is the ninth bubble.
Cut off the ninth bubble and tie off the end (Pic 13).
Adjust the chain of the last three bubbles on the top of the first bubble (Pic 14 through 17). Congratulations, you have made the crown!
This is a very small size crown. You can use it for any small head: dolls, dogs and etc. Bellow is an example of a doll wearing the tiny crown (Pic 18 through 23). Have fun and happy twisting :)
