How to make balloon heart

CC0


Dailymotion:
Materials: two balloons; an air pump and scissors.



We are going to use two balloons to make a heart. Inflate a blue balloon leaving an eight—inch flat tail (Pic 1).

We are going to twist twenty bubbles. It’s important to twist all bubbles of the same about one inch size. Making bubbles of different sizes would distort the sculpture. Twist the first bubble (Pic 2).

Twist the second bubble (Pic 3).

Lock both ends of the second bubble in one lock twist (Pic 4). This step is marked with arrows between points B and C on the scheme 1.

Twist the third bubble (Pic 5).

Twist the fourth bubble (Pic 6).

Lock both ends of the fourth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 7). This step is marked with arrows between points D and E on the scheme 1.

Twist the fifth bubble (Pic 8).

Twist the sixth bubble (Pic 9).

Lock both ends of the sixth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 10). This step is marked with arrows between points F and G on the scheme 1.

Twist the seventh bubble (Pic 11).

Lock both ends of the chain of the first seven (the first through the seventh) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 12). This step is marked with arrows between points A and H on the scheme 1.

Twist the eighth bubble (Pic 13).

Twist the ninth bubble (Pic 14).

Twist the tenth bubble (Pic 15).

Lock both ends of the tenth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 16). This step is marked with arrows between points J and K on the scheme 1.

Twist the eleventh bubble (Pic 17).

Twist the twelfth bubble (Pic 18).

Lock both ends of the twelfth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 19). This step is marked with arrows between points L and M on the scheme 1.

Twist the thirteenth bubble (Pic 20).

Twist the fourteenth bubble (Pic 21).

Lock both ends of the fourteenth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 22). This step is marked with arrows between points N and O on the scheme 1.

Twist the fifteenth bubble (Pic 23).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last seven (the ninth through the fifteenth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 24). This step is marked with arrows between points I and P on the scheme 1.

Twist the sixteenth bubble (Pic 25).

Twist the seventeenth bubble (Pic 26).

Lock both ends of the seventeenth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 27). This step is marked with arrows between points Q and P on the scheme 1.

Twist the eighteenth bubble (Pic 28).

Twist the nineteenth bubble (Pic 29).

Lock both ends of the nineteenth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 30). This step is marked with arrows between points S and T on the scheme 1.

Twist the twentieth bubble (Pic 31).

The rest of the balloon is the 21st bubble. Lock both ends of the chain of the first twenty (the first through the 20th) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 32 and 33). This step is marked with arrows between points A and U on the scheme 1.


Cut off the 21st bubble and tie off the end. Inflate the pink balloon leaving an eight—inch flat tail (Pic 34).

We are going to twist 15 bubbles. It’s important to make all bubbles of the same about one inch sizes. Twist the first pink bubble (Pic 35).

Lock both ends of the first pink bubble in one lock twist (Pic 36). This step is marked with arrows between points A and B on the scheme 2.

Twist the second pink bubble (Pic 37).

Lock the free end (point C on the scheme 2) of the second pink bubble around the nineteenth blue bubble (Pic 38 and 39).


We are going to work the pink balloon all the way around the shape of the blue balloon. Twist the third pink bubble (Pic 40).

Lock the free end (the point D on the scheme 2) of the third pink bubble around the second blue bubble (Pic 41).

Twist the fourth pink bubble (Pic 42).

Twist the fifth pink bubble (Pic 43).

Lock the free end (the point E on the scheme 2) of the fifth pink bubble around the fourth blue bubble (Pic 44).

Twist the sixth pink bubble (Pic 45).

Twist the seventh pink bubble (Pic 46).

Lock the free end (the point F on the scheme 2) of the seventh bubble around the sixth blue bubble (Pic 47).

Twist the eighth pink bubble (Pic 48).

Lock the free end (the point G on the scheme 2) of the eighth pink bubble around the tenth blue bubble (Pic 49).

Twist the ninth pink bubble (Pic 50).

Twist the tenth pink bubble (Pic 51).

Lock the free end (the point H on the scheme 2) of the tenth pink bubble around the twelfth blue bubble (Pic 52).

Twist the eleventh pink bubble (Pic 53).

Twist the twelfth pink bubble (Pic 54).

Lock the free end (the point I on the scheme 2) of the twelfth pink bubble around the fourteenth blue bubble (Pic 55).

Twist the thirteenth pink bubble (Pic 56).

Lock the free end (the point J on the scheme 2) of the thirteenth pink bubble around the seventeenth blue bubble (Pic 57).

Twist the fourteenth pink bubble (Pic 58).

Lock both ends of the chain of the first fourteen pink (the first through the fourteenth) bubbles in one lock twist. This step is marked with arrows between points A and K on the scheme 2. The rest of the pink balloon is the fifteenth bubble (Pic 59).

Congratulations, you have made the heart! You can cut off the fifteenth pink bubble and tie off the end (Pic 60).

Or you can keep the fifteenth pink bubble to make a handle or a braceletLock both ends of the fifteenth pink bubble in one lock twist to make a bracelet (Pic 61 and 62).


Below is an example of one color heart (Pic 63 and 64). Have fun and happy twisting :)
