Giraffe Balloon Modeling

Step 1: Take the balloon of the size 260 and inflate it, leaving about 2″/ 5 cm uninflated at the end. You will need them for the tail and to move the air inside the balloon as you twist. Look at the proportions of the model shown on the picture.

Step 2: Twist one long bubble for the nose and two round bubbles of equal size for the ears. Make the bubbles, starting from the knotted end, and twist them in one direction by one hand. Hold the bubbles you’ve made in the other hand to prevent them from untwisting.

Step 3: Fold the top two bubbles downward.

Step 4:

Step 5: Twist the second and third bubbles together several times to make the giraffe’s ears.

Step 6:

Step 7: Make one long bubble for the neck and two bubbles of equal size for the forelegs.

Step 8: Fold the bottom bubble over.

Step 9: Twist the second and third bubbles together several times to make the forelegs.

Step 10: Make three bubbles: a short one for the body and two bubbles of equal size for the hind legs. Leave some air for making the tail.

Step 11: Fold the bottom bubble over.

Step 12: Twist the second and third bubbles together several times to make the hind legs. Shape the air in the tail into two bubbles and squeeze one bubble to the end of the tail.

Step 13: Draw some spots and some eyes with a marker, and the giraffe is complete.
