Winnie The Pooh of balloons


Dailymotion:



Supplies: balloons, an air pump and a permanent black marker.

Inflate an yellow (honey) balloon leaving about 10 cm flat tail.


Twist the first about 10 - 12 cm bubble. It is one arm.

Twist the next about 5-6 cm bubble.

Twist the next about 3 cm bubble.

Lock both ends of the last bubble in one lock twist. It is one ear. 

Twist the next about 8-10 cm bubble.

Twist the next about 3 cm bubble.

Lock both ends of the last bubble in one lock twist. It is the second ear.

Twist the next about 5-6 cm bubble.

Twist the next about 5-6 cm bubble.

Twist the next soft about 10 cm bubble.

Lock both ends of the last bubble in one lock twist. It is the muzzle.

Twist the next about 5-6 cm bubble.

Lock both ends of the chain of the last eight bubbles in one lock twist. 

Squeeze the rest of the balloon to get rid of any flat tail.

Twist the next bubble measuring it from the round end of the balloon. 

Make this bubble of the same size as the first bubble. It is the second arm.


Lock the free end of the last bubble between the 6th and the 7th bubbles.



Inflate a red balloon making about 30 cm or longer bubble.

Tie the nozzle of the red balloon at the base of the arm bubble.

Twist the first red bubble about 2-3 cm longer than the top of the head.

Lock the free end of the first red bubble at the base of the other arm.

Twist a chain of the next two red bubbles. Make each of this bubbles about half size of the first red bubble.


Lock both ends of the chain of the first three red bubbles in one lock twist. 

Cut off the rest of the red balloon and tie off the end.





I use the round end of a black balloon to make a nose. Inflate and tie off about 2 cm bubble at the very end of the black balloon. Cut off the rest of the black balloon leaving about 3 cm flat tail.

Pull the flat end of the black balloon through the muzzle (the loop of the 8th yellow) bubble.


Pull the muzzle bubble closer to the head. 

Tie the flat tail of the black balloon between two small red bubbles.


The sculpture already looks good and recognizable.




I use a black permanent marker to draw eyes.

Congratulations! We have made Winnie the Pooh.


We can fix the large yellow bubble in different positions.



We can use this sculpture as a bracelet. 

Have fun and happy twisting :)
