Materials: two balloons and an air pump.


We are going to use two balloons to make a six points star. The scheme is the same for both balloons. Twist all bubbles of the same size. Inflate a blue balloon leaving one—inch flat tail (Pic 1). Make the balloon soft by squeezing it.

Tie ends of the balloon (Pic 2). This step is marked with arrows between points A and B on the scheme.

Twist the first bubble of 1/3 size of the balloon (Pic 3).

Twist the second (and the third) bubble of the same size (Pic 4). You have made a triangle.

Inflate the yellow balloon leaving one—inch flat tail. Twist the first bubble of 1/3 size of the balloon (Pic 5).

Twist the second bubble of the same size (Pic 6). The rest of the balloon is the third bubble. Make sure all bubbles are of the same size. We are going to weave the yellow balloon inside of the triangle of the blue balloon.

Pull the first yellow bubble half way through the middle of the triangle (Pic 7). Weave the first yellow bubble around one of the sides of the blue triangle.

Weave the second yellow bubble around the next side of the blue triangle (Pic 8).

Weave the third yellow bubble around the next side of the blue triangle (Pic 9).

Tie ends of the yellow balloon in one knot. This step is marked with arrows between points A and B on the scheme. Fix both triangles in a shape of the six points star. Congratulations, you have made the six points star (Pic 10 and 11). Have fun and happy twisting :)
