How to Make Balloon Ninja Turtle Bracelet




Supplies: balloons, an air pump, scissors, white correction liquid, and black permanent marker.
Inflate a green balloon leaving about 12-14 cm flat tail.


Twist the first about 25 cm bubble.


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

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

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


Twist the next about 3 cm bubble.

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


Inflate the second balloon (of appropriate color as you want to make the mask) leaving about 12-14 cm flat tail.
I use purple balloon in this example.

Pull the nuzzle end of the second balloon through the loop of the second green bubble.



Squeeze the second balloon to make it soft.

Loop the second balloon around the green bubble to measure the size of the first bubble.
It should be smaller size than the first green bubble.

Twist the first purple bubble.

Twist the second purple about 3 cm bubble.

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

Lock both ends of the first purple bubble in one lock twist.

Later we are going to pop the middle bubble to spit the balloon on two parts.

Twist the next about 15-20 cm bubble.

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

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

Get back to the three small purple bubbles.

Lock both ends of the first small bubble in one lock twist.

Use scissors to cut the middle purple bubble.


Untwist and deflate the small purple bubbles.
Tie off the end.
Work one bubble at a time.

Hold both long purple bubbles together and bend them to desirable shape.





Force the green bubble (the one with the mask) inside of the loop of the first green bubble.

Here is the side view.

Deflate the rest of the green balloon.

Tie the end of the green balloon between green bubbles.

We have made the bracelet.

Here are examples of sculptures with different color masks.

Use white correction liquid and a permanent black marker to draw the face of ninja turtles.

First paint the base of eyes with white correction liquid.


Draw the mouth and the eyes with the permanent black marker.


Congratulations! We have made the ninja turtle balloon bracelet.



Have fun and happy twisting :)
