Balloons — Frog Hat

I really like this cute frog balloon hat.  Thanks for teaching it to me, Baloo!  If you have difficulties with those little fiddly one-balloon frogs, try this out instead.  I’ll just try explaining how to make it, since I don’t have any instructions.

  • Make a basic helmet with a green 260.
  • Inflate another green 260 and tie the ends together to make a circle.  Twist circle in half to make a figure-8 shape.  Twist the two outside joints together so that you have four equal lengths joined together at both the top and bottom.
  • Find the softest of the four lengths, and twist it in the middle.  Connect this twist to the front joint of the green helmet.
  • Inflate a small white round to about the size of a golf ball.  Twist this into two equal halves.
  • Take the length of green balloon above the front helmet joint, and twist this one in half also.  Attach the white balloon at this joint.
  • Fully inflate a red 260 using your favorite method to make it curled.  Twist a small bubble at the knotted end and attach to the front joint of the helmet, making sure to go through the frog’s mouth.
  • Draw on your froggie’s eyes.  All done!
