Balloon Guitar




Supplies: balloons and an air pump.
Inflate a balloon of appropriate color for the guitar body leaving about 3-4 cm flat tail.


Twist the first about 10-12 cm bubble.

Twist the next about 10-12 cm bubble.

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

Twist the next about 20-25 cm bubble.


Lock the free end of the last bubble between the first two bubbles.
You have to pull the end of the balloon through the loop of the first two bubbles.






Bend the last bubble to shape a "V".

Twist the next about 8 cm bubble.

Twist the next about 12 cm bubble.

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

Squeeze the rest of the balloon to make it soft and to inflate the flat end of the balloon (if you have any).

Loop the rest of the balloon around the "V" bubble to measure the size of the next bubble.

Twist the next bubble.
In this example, I twist about 3 cm bubble at the end of the balloon.

Lock the last bubble between the first two bubbles.
Fix all bubbles in proper positions.
We made the body of the guitar.

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

Cut off the rest of the balloon.
You can keep it as it is. 

Or deflate the last small bubble and tie off the end.

Insert the neck of the guitar (the second balloon) between the first two bubbles of the guitar body.




Congratulations! We have made the balloon electric guitar!
