How to Make a Bulldog Balloon Animal

Yes, this is made out of only one balloon. Think small. Think tiny bubbles. The first few times you try this, you will probably run out of balloon. That’s OK. You will get the proportions right. I cannot take credit for this creation. It’s an example of what you can learn when you share at conventions. A clown from Mexico created this. I forgot his name though. Excellent detail!

1. Twist two ½ inch bubbles. Ear twist the second bubble and arrange as shown. This forms the lower lip of the bulldog.


2. Twist three more ½ inch bubbles, as shown.

4. Twist yet another ear twist, divide it in half and rest those tiny bubbles behind the other three ear twists. See picture.


This forms the eyes of the bulldog.

5. Twist two one-inch bubbles.

8. Twist five- ½ inch bubbles, lock twist them together as shown in the picture.

9.  Ear twist the second and the fourth bubbles. Point the ears forward. This forms the head of the bulldog.

10. Complete the bulldog with a basic dog body or the fancier body



(See examples.) Mark the face as shown.

Give this animal a chance. It is small, detailed and impressive, yet only requires one balloon.  Enjoy!

Keep on Twistin!
