This is a fairly easy mermaid… but can be bigger than the child! Little girls LOVE it!
Step 1. Inflate a red (or other hair colored balloon) 260 leaving about a 2″ tip. Make a small loop for her bangs followed by a pinch twist.
Step 3. Bring a bubble down about 3″ for one side of her hair. Bring a bubble of the same size up and then one more back down for the other side.
Step 8. Fold the balloon in half and twist. Now make two 6 – 8 inch bubbles and twist.
Step 10. Spiral the remaining longer two bubbles toward the tips. Make a small bubble on the tip that doesn’t have the pinch twists. Twist the pinch twists and the small bubble together. This will become the waist of the mermaid. The 3 combined bubble helps to stabilize her body.
It should look like this.
Step 11. Make a 2″ bubble for her torso and discard the rest of the balloon. Twist in at the top of the Lime Green 260.
Step 12. Add artwork and place on the child’s head…
