Balloons – Santa Hat & Beard

This hat looks ridiculously large on my model, but that just seems to make it that much more festive.  Here are the instructions on Youtube.  The only thing that I did differently, was that I used two 260’s spiraled together for the beard.  It just changes the look of it and makes the beard longer. […]

Balloons – Mohawk Hat

I love how this hat looks!  Make a basic helmet and embellish it with spirals of different colors.  Fully inflate three balloons of whatever colors you choose–school colors, sports team colors, whatever.  Insert one of the fully inflated balloons through the top of the helmet and wrap around, spiraling balloon and lock twisting at the […]

Balloons – Head Hunter Hat

As you can see from the picture, this is a giant hat!  Make sure the person wearing it has plenty of clearance.  Even though it looks quite impressive, once you get the hang of it, the design is quite simple.  It’s from The Inflatable Crown Balloon Hat Book by Addi Somekh and Charlie Eckert.

Balloons – Alien Hat

The idea for this cool alien hat came from another blog.  I like how you can pose his arms, so it looks like he’s reaching out to grab someone.

Origami – Pointy Hat

I like this goofy-looking hat as something silly to dress up a volunteer.  Instructions are here.  Follow the instructions through step 13.

Balloons – Cow Hat

This cow hat is just plain adorable.  We live in cow-country, so it’s very appropriate here.  If you’re an intermediate twister, you can probably handle this design.  Instructions are here.

Balloons – Braided Hat

Here’s a super-cute braided balloon hat/turban.  It’s relatively easy to make, but looks impressive when you’re done.  Instructions on Youtube.

Balloons – Space Invader

This hat is monstrous!  You need several feet of clearance when wearing it.  It’s from The Inflatable Crown Balloon Hat Book by Addi Somekh and Charlie Eckert.

Balloons – Circle Hat

I came up with this simple hat while playing around one day.  Simply make a basic helmet, making a loop with the tail that’s left over and securing it into the helmet’s twist.  Fully inflate another balloon and twist the ends together to make a loop.  Twist the loop into the hat’s joint and arrange […]

Balloons – Martian Helmet

This hat is also from The Inflatable Crown Balloon Hat Book by Addi Somekh and Charlie Eckert.  I like experimenting with different colors with this one.

Balloons – Baseball Cap

I like how the baseball cap looks–like something you’d see in a cartoon.  It’s quite quick and easy.  Directions in this Youtube video.

Origami – Samurai Hat

Here we have a fun Samurai hat that can be made in all sizes–big enough for a child, or small enough for their little stuffed buddy.  It’s a fun hat to use for silly dress-up.  Once you get the hang of this hat, you can crank them out pretty quick!  Here are the directions.  

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 […]
