Balloon letter M. Balloon letter W

CC0

Materials: a balloon; an air pump; sewing thread and scissors.


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

Twist the first soft two—inch bubble (Pic 2).

Lock both ends of the first bubble in one lock twist (Pic 3). This step is marked with arrows between points A and B on the scheme.

Twist the second five—inch bubble (Pic 4).

Twist the third soft two—inch bubble (Pic 5).

Lock both ends of the third bubble in one lock twist (Pic 6). This step is marked with arrows between points C and D on the scheme.

Twist the fourth five—inch bubble (Pic 7).

Twist the fifth soft two—inch bubble (Pic 8).

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

Twist the sixth five—inch bubble (Pic 10).

Twist the 7th soft two—inch bubble (Pic 11).

Lock both ends of the 7th bubble in one lock twist (Pic 12). This step is marked with arrows between points G and H on the scheme.

Twist the eighth five—inch bubble (Pic 13).

Twist the 9th soft two—inch bubble (Pic 14).

Lock both ends of the ninth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 15). This step is marked with arrows between points J and I on the scheme. The rest of the balloon is the tenth bubble.

Cut off the tenth bubble and tie off the end (Pic 16). Loop one end of the sewing thread around the first bubble. Bring the second bubble closer to the eighth bubble. Loop the sewing thread around the fifth bubble and loop the other end of the sewing thread around the ninth bubble (Pic 16). Loop the thread around the third bubble. Bring the third bubble closer to the seventh bubble. Loop the thread around the seventh bubble. Congratulations, you have made the letter M.

Turn the letter M upside down to make the letter W (Pic 17). Choose appropriate color sewing thread to link the letter M with other letters. As you can see here the light color thread is hardly visible on a light background. After you made and connected all letters in words you can attach the signs you made to a wall with a sticky tape. Have fun and happy twisting :)
