What You Need:

  • 1 x red twisting balloon
  • 1 x 11″ round white balloon
  • 1 x black sharpie


  • Take your white twisting balloon and twist an arms length of the balloon a couple of times.
  • After that make two pinch twists just under where you have twisted in the first step.
  • Leave a size figures length gap and twist again.
  • Rip off the rest of the balloon and tie a knot to keep twisted section of the balloon inflated.
  • Take your other white twisting balloon and inflate it and wrap it around the two pinch twists on your original white twisting balloon
  • To make a body, measure up the length of the second balloon beside the first one and twist where they measure up and rip the rest of the balloon off. Tie a knot where the twist is to keep the balloon inflated.
  • Now you have a body.
  • To make a head take your white round balloon and inflate it until it gets a little bit round at the bottom.
  • Get your red twisting balloon and make two pinch twists at the top.
  • Bend the balloon in half and twist it on to the other end of the balloon to make a circle.
  • Take the rest of the balloon and measure it up against the circle and put two pinch twists where it measures up.
  • Deflate the left over bit of the balloon and tie the latex around the balloon so it is almost invisible.
  • Attach the white head to the white body, do so by tying the balloon tie from the head to the body.
  • Take the balloon tie from the bottom of the white body and wrap it into one of the two pinch twists on the red circle.
  • Put one of the white arms through the red circle and then put the white head through the same side of the circle.
  • Put the other white arm through the other side of the red circle.
  • Take your black sharpie and draw two black circles next to each other.
  • Draw a bigger black circle where the mouth will be.
  • Draw two small black eyebrows above the two eyes.
  • Draw a small horizontal style line for a nose.
