It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, little boys LOVE a pirate hat and a quick sword! This one is a piece of cake.
Inflate TWO black 260s leaving about a 1″ tip. Burp, tie off. Make about an 8″ loop on each of the balloons on the nozzle end.
Put a loop on each side of the child’s head and form a hat base like so.
Make a small bubble on the end of one of the balloons.
Twist it under the loop on the opposite side of the hat base.
Repeat with the other balloon. You should have two arches going up and over the child’s head.
Inflate a white 5″ round about the size of a grapefruit.
Pinch off a small bubble at the top of the 5″ round.
Twist it in at the center of the arches on the top of the hat base.
Pull the nozzle down and twist it in on ONE of the bubbles that forms the hat base.

Thanks for the Pirate hat idea,
I am at a Unitarian retreat in West VA and they were having a little talent show for adults. I needed to make a hat for a guy doing a pirate song and I loved your idea with the skull attached.. Thanks :0)
