Balloon Giraffe

By , About.com Guide

Twisting a giraffe balloon animal is very similar to making the basic dog balloon. In fact, a giraffe, in the balloon world, is pretty much just a dog balloon with a long neck. If you can already twist a basic dog balloon, you can twist a giraffe.

I strongly suggest that you first learn to twist a basic dog balloon before you try to make the giraffe.

Materials:
One 260 Balloon, Marker to draw spots (optional)

Step 1: Inflate the balloon to about two inches from the end.

Step 2: Twist three basic balloon twists. The first will be about three inches long, which will form the nose of the giraffe. The second and third twists will be smaller, about an inch each, to form "ears."

Step 3: Bring the first, longer twist against the main body of the balloon in preparation for a lock twist.
Twist the two smaller "ears" to create a lock twist.

Step 4: Your balloon sculpture should now resemble the head of a giraffe.

Step 5: Twist three basic balloon twists, the first about five-inches, and the second and third about three-inches each. The first segment will form the giraffe's long neck. The second and third twists will form the giraffe's front legs.

As you did with the giraffe's head, create a lock twist by twisting the legs and holding the rest.

Step 7: Twist three basic balloon twists, the first about three inches and the second and third about three-inches. The first will form the giraffe's body. The second and third twists will form the giraffe's back legs. The final balloon segment will form the giraffe's tail.

As you did with the giraffe’s front legs create a lock twist by twisting the legs and holding the rest.

Step 8: You have now twisted a basic giraffe balloon animal. If you want to embellish your giraffe, you can add spots with a marker.
