How to make an "air surprise" for a birthday inexpensively
Each of us at least once saw how circus artists manage to twist balloons in the form of sausages into incredible shapes. At first glance, this seems complicated, but if you try to do something similar on your own at least once, in the future it will no longer be a curiosity for you. This process even has its own name - twisting. So, what you need to make a bouquet of balloons for the birthday of a child or an adult (all this can be ordered with home delivery):
- Six pieces of five inch balls.
- Five or more ten inch balls.
- Five green balls and six different balls for modeling.
- Hand pump.
Let's start by learning the basics. The following are the rules that require strict observance not only in our particular case, but in general, they cannot be ignored in any way when making a balloon arrangement for a birthday. When working with balloons in this technique, you need to remember the following:
- Never inflate the balloons to the limit, otherwise they may burst at the most unexpected moment and simply spoil the whole composition even before the birthday delivery;
- Twist the balls in only one direction;
- Start twisting only from the base, i.e. "neck" of the ball.
After reading the rules, you can directly start making our compositions for a birthday or other holiday.
Beautiful flowers from balloons for a birthday - we make a bud
Making balloon bouquets always starts with preparation. First, prepare one red (pink, purple, burgundy, etc.) balloon and inflate it so that only about three cm of the base of the balloon remains deflated. Tie up the balloon. Anyone can do this, but we want to present the easiest way. It is necessary to wrap the tip around the middle and index fingers, thereby forming a loop, and pass the end of the ball into it. Then:
- Take two of these balls and tie them with a double knot at the ends. You should have a ring. It must be folded in half and twisted at the fold several times;
- Prepare a folded ball, divide it into three parts and twist it in two places;
- Give the ball the shape of an accordion. Grab the resulting accordion with one hand in the place where it is twisted, and with the other hand scroll the ball in the center. That's all - our airy birthday flower is ready!
Making flower stems
Well, what is a flower without a stem? To create it, take one green ball. It should initially have the shape of a sausage. The longer the ball, the greater the height of the composition, the price also depends on its size. Inflate it, while leaving a few cm at the base. Make a knot in this place, and at a distance of about 10 cm from it, bend the ball. Track the level at which the knot is now, and twist the ball in this part. Purpose: to make the node invisible.
To complete the picture, you can build small petals. To do this, take about 10 cm in the middle of the stem, twist it several times, straighten the resulting leaves. So, the flower will look complete and you will only have to collect the finished flowers into a single bouquet. After that, you only need to deliver a gift to a person on his birthday!
