Squishy Head Balloon

Posted by on

Here is a fun creation, which is very unique, using three round balloons. The Squishy Head Balloon can be used as a centerpiece at parties, or as a great giveaway.

Balloons needed:
One 5 inch round balloon, white for the eyes and One 5 inch round balloon, any color for the nose

One 11 inch round balloon, preferably polka dotted for the head 
A piece of a 260 at least 4 inches in length 
Inflate a 6 inch round to 2 inches for the nose Step 1: Inflate the 5-inch color round to about 2 inchs. Tie the knot close to the nozzle end.
Inflate a white 6 inch round to about 4 inches Step 2a: Inflate the white 5 –inch round to almost double the size of your nose balloon and tie the knot close too the body of the balloon.
Twist the white balloon in half Step 2b: Twist the white balloon in half and wrap the nozzle around the middle 4 or 5 times.
Twist the nose and eyes together
Twist the nose and eyes together
Step 2c: Tie the nozzles of the nose and eye balloons together nearest the end.
Inflate the 11-inch round about ¾ full. Step 3a: Inflate the 11-inch round about ¾ full for the head.

Tie the knots of the eyes and nose into the nozzle of the head balloon
Tie the eyes and nose into the nozzle of the head balloon

Step 3b: Now tie the knots of the eyes and nose into the nozzle of the head balloon, staying to the end of the nozzle.
Pull knots through to bottom and tie off Step 4: Using the apple or tulip twist; push the knots to the opposite side of the balloon, grab them through the balloon with the other hand and twist several times. Using the piece of 260 wrap the knots so they do not come loose.
Completed Squishy Head
 
Step 5: Position the nose and eyes atop the head balloon and draw in the eyes and mouth. I like to use one of the polka dots for the mouth if one lines up properly.
