Materials: two balloons; an air pump and scissors.


We are going to use two balloons of different colors to make this sculpture. I will use the blue balloon to make the inner part and the pink balloon for the outer part of the heart. Inflate both balloons leaving a nine—inch flat tail (Pic 1).

We are going to twist all bubbles of the same size, no more than one inch. Tie knots of both balloons together (Pic 2).

Twist the second pink bubble (Pic 4).

Lock the free end of the 3rd pink (the point B on the scheme 1) bubble with the free end of the first blue (the point B on the scheme 2) bubble (Pic 7).

Twist the 4th pink bubble (Pic 8).

Twist the fifth pink bubble (Pic 9).

Twist the second blue bubble (Pic 10).

Twist the tenth pink bubble (Pic 21).

Twist the eleventh pink bubble (Pic 22).

Twist the fourteenth pink bubble (Pic 31).

Twist the tenth blue bubble (Pic 32).

Lock the free end of the fourteenth pink (the point H on the scheme 1) bubble with the free end of the tenth blue (the point H on the scheme 2) bubble (Pic 33).

Twist the eighteenth pink bubble (Pic 39).

Twist the twelfth blue bubble (Pic 40).

Lock the free end of the eighteenth pink (the point J on the scheme 1) bubble with the free end of the twelfth blue (the point I on the scheme 2) bubble. Twist the nineteenth pink bubble (Pic 41).

Twist the twentieth pink bubble (Pic 42).

Twist the thirteenth blue bubble (Pic 43).

Twist the fourteenth blue bubble (Pic 44).

Lock the free end of the twentieth pink (the point K on the scheme 1) bubble with the free end of the fourteenth blue (the point K on the scheme 2) bubble (Pic 45).

Lock both ends of the chain of twenty pink (or chain of fourteenth blue bubbles) in one lock twist (Pic 46). This step is marked with arrows between points A and K on the scheme 1 or 2.

The rest of the pink balloon is the twenty-first bubble. The rest of the blue balloon is the fifteenth bubble (Pic 47). You may cut off the twenty-first pink and the fifteenth blue bubble.

Or you may use the extra bubbles to make a bracelet (Pic 48 through 51). Congratulations, you have made the heart. Have fun and happy twisting :)
