Bow-tiful Bow Balloon Animal DIY Tutorial
Bows are one of the top trends this year. They’re in fashion, hair and now in party decoration! Today we’re excited to share this simple DIY on how to make some bow balloon animals. Read on for our step-by-step guide!Materials Needed:
Step 1: Using a balloon pump to inflate the long balloon. Before inflating, give your balloon a quick stretch so it’s easier to inflate. Avoid over-inflating to prevent popping. Tie a knot at the end.
Step 2: Once the balloon is inflated, stretch the inflated balloon to extend the length. Twist the balloon at 8-10 inches to make one of the tail of the bow.
Step 3: Create the bow loop by twisting the balloon (each side is about 4-5 inches). Repeat it for the other bow loop.
Step 4: Make a small bubble and twist it at the middle to create the central knot.
Step 5: To create a “square edge” for the two bow loops, simply give the side a few gentle squeezes to form the shape.
Step 6: Adjust the bow by twisting to secure the balloon, and trim any excess balloon length with scissors for a cleaner look.
Voila! You've created a charming bow balloon animal! You can use any color of the long balloon to match the color / theme of your celebration. To attach it to a balloon garland, simply use glue dot to add a festive touch to your event!
