Spring is here and to see all the little bunnies hopping around is one of my favorite things. Here is a nice balloon rabbit to add to your springtime balloon repertoire.
What you need:
2 –260 balloons; one for the body (color is your choice) and a pink one for the nose.
Step 1. Inflate the 260 leaving about a 3″ tail soften balloon and tie.
Step 2. Twist three bubbles, the first about a 1/2 inch and the next bubbles about 3/4 inches.
Step 3. Lock twist the last two bubbles.
Step 4. Stretch the nozzle of the balloon up so the knot is just above the top of this lock twist bubbles.
Step 5. Roll twist the single bubble through the other two as you hold on to the nozzle. You now have the bunny’s muzzle.
Step 6. Make another set of three bubbles the first about an inch and a half and the next bubbles about 2 inches.
Step 7. Lock twist the second two bubbles.
Step 8. Roll twist the first bubble through the second two; this creates the face.
Step 9. Make two bubbles about 3 1/2 inches long for the ears and lock twits them.
Step 10. Make a 1-inch bubble for the neck.
Step 11. The front feet are made with 2-inch bubbles with a lock twist.
Step 12. Make the body from a 2-inch bubble.
Step 13. The remainder of the balloon will be just enough for the hind legs and tail. Make the two larger bubbles and the small tail bubble, lock twist the leg bubbles to secure.
Step 1. Inflate the pink 260 to just about a 1-inch bubble and tie off on either side of the bubble.
Step 2. Snip off the excess balloon.
Step 3. Wind the snipped tail into the nose segment; repeat with the nozzle end.
Step 4. Pinch the pink bubble slightly and push into the nose bubbles and this will give a nice shape to the bunnies nose.
Step 5. With permanent marker draw whiskers and eyes.
Your bunny is now complete.
