Materials: a balloon; an air pump; scissors and a permanent marker.


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

The first bubble you twist to make the head. Twist the first two—inch bubble (Pic 2).

The next three bubbles you twist in the bird body fold/ twist. Twist the second three—inch bubble (Pic 3).

Twist the third three—inch bubble (Pic 4).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the first and the second) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 5). This step is marked with arrows between points A and C on the scheme.

Twist the fourth three—inch bubble (Pic 6).

Lock the free end of the fourth bubble between the second and the third bubbles (Pic 7). You have to roll the second and the third bubbles around the fourth bubble. This step is marked with arrows between points D and B on the scheme. You have made the bird body fold.

The next three bubbles you twist in the bird body fold. Twist the fifth four—inch bubble (Pic 8).

Twist the sixth four—inch bubble (Pic 9).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the fifth and the sixth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 10). This step is marked with arrows between points D and F on the scheme.

Twist the seventh four—inch bubble (Pic 11).

Lock the free end of the seventh bubble between the fifth and the sixth bubbles (Pic 12). This step is marked with arrows between points G and E on the scheme. You have made the bird body fold. The rest of the balloon is the eighth bubble.

Cut off the eighth bubble and tie off the end (Pic 13). Use the permanent marker to draw the face of the snowman. Congratulations, you have made the snowman.

There are a couple details you can add to this sculpture to make it look nicer. Make a tiny hat (Pic 14).

Lock the nozzle of the white balloon between bubbles of the black hat (Pic 15 and 16).


You can use a black balloon (or the rest of the black balloon that you used to make the tiny hat) to make the arms. Inflate one—inch bubble of the black balloon (Pic 17).

Force the flat tail of the black balloon half way between the second and the fourth bubbles of the snowman (Pic 18).

Split the first black bubble on two bubbles. Force the second black bubble to the opposite end of the flat tail (Pic 19 and 21). Tie a knot in the middle of the black balloon to keep the bubbles separately. Hide the knot between white bubbles. Marry Christmas! Have fun and happy twisting :)
