The Jack O' Lantern Balloon:
This is a very simple balloon to make using one balloon, an Orange 321Q (or Bee Body Balloon), and the apple twist.
- I like to tell the kids I will make the face that looks just like them, drawing freckles or some little resemblance of the child, then proudly display the pumpkin stating it looks just like them.
- Sometimes the pumpkins like to tip over when you set them down, simply rub the bottom on your sleeve to create a little static charge and it will stick securely to a flat surface.
- In spring or for back-to-school, use a Red Bee Body Balloon and draw a smiley face for a cute "apple" for the teacher!
|Step 1: Partially inflate the balloon to about the size of small apple and tie it off.
|Step 2a: Now for the apple twist. Push the knot up through the balloon with your index finger, with the thumb and index finger of the opposite hand; grip the knot through the balloon on the nozzle end.
|Step 2b: Once you have gripped the knot, simply pull your finger out of the balloon and twist the knot into the stem several times and let go,
|Your completed Apple Twist balloon should look like this.
|Step 3: With a black magic marker draw your pumpkin face; you now have a fun little jack o' lantern. Be creative and try different facial details.
