Bunny Balloon Hat

Inflate a soft white balloon without a flat tail. Squeeze the balloon a couple times to make it softer.




Make a chain of two about 15-16 cm long bubbles. 

Lock both ends of the chain of the first two bubbles in one lock twist. We have made the first ear.

The next two bubbles we are going to twist from the opposite (round) end of the balloon. Measure and twist the next soft bubble about 2-3 cm longer than the first bubble.


Make sure the bubble is soft!

Twist the next bubble of the same size as the first bubble.

Pinch the round end of the balloon to make the bubble of the same size as the first bubble.




Lock both ends of the chain of the last two bubbles in one lock twist. We have made the second ear.

Make sure both ears of the same size. 


We have made the ears with the back of the hat.

Inflate a balloon of desirable color. I use pink in this example.


Tie the nozzle of the pink balloon between white bubbles of the first ear.

Twist the first pink bubble about 1-2 cm shorter than the white ear bubbles.

Lock the free end of the first pink bubble at the base of the ear.

Twist the next soft about 3 cm pink bubble.

Lock both ends of the last pink bubble in one lock twist.

Wrap the sculpture around your head to measure the size of the next pink bubble. It should be long enough to make the front part of the hat.


Twist the next pink about 9-10 cm bubble. It is the front part of the hat.

Twist the next soft about 3 cm pink bubble.

Lock both ends of the last pink bubble in one lock twist.

Lock the last pink bubble with the base of the second ear.

Measure and twist the next pink bubble. It should be 1-2 cm shorter than the white ear bubbles.

Make sure the last and the first pink bubbles of about the same size.

Lock the free end of the last pink bubble between the white bubbles of the second ear.

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

Fix all bubbles in proper positions.

Congratulations! We have made bunny hat of balloons. 

We can fix the pink ear bubbles in a different way.


Force the top end of the pink ear bubbles between top end of the white ear bubbles. Keep the bottom part of the pink ear bubbles in front of the hat.




Have fun and happy twisting :)
