One balloon daisy




Supplies: balloons, an air pump. scissors, white correction liquid, yellow marker and green plastic straw.

Stretch the round end (nipple) of a white balloon.


Inflate the balloon starting from the nipple end. Leave about 10 - 15 cm flat tail at the nozzle end.

Twist the first about 3 cm bubble at the nipple end of the balloon. We have made the center of the flower.

The next five bubbles we twist of the same about 10 - 12 cm size. Twist the next bubble.

Lock both ends of the second bubble in one lock twist. 

Twist the third bubble. Lock both ends of the third bubble in one lock twist.

Twist the fourth bubble. Lock both ends of the fourth bubble in one lock twist.

Twist the fifth bubble. Lock both ends of the fifth bubble in one lock twist.

Twist the sixth bubble. Lock both ends of the sixth bubble in one lock twist. We have made five petals flower.


Deflate the rest part of the balloon.

Loop the flat end of the balloon around your fingers. Lock the nozzle end of the balloon between bubbles of the sculpture.


Paint the first (the center) bubble with white correction liquid.

Let it dry.

Paint the first bubble with yellow marker.

Congratulation! We have made daisy flower of one balloon. We can use it as it is, as a bracelet or as a ring.



The flower looks good on a stem. I am going to use a green plastic straw (from Starbucks will do) for the stem.

Force one end of the straw between bubbles of the sculpture.


Congratulations again! We have made one balloon daisy.




Have fun and happy twisting :)
