How to make space balloon sculpture

 Tools needed : balloon pump, measuring tape


1. Blow up 12PCs 12inch balloons to similar sizes, suggest 20-22cm. (place a ruler or measuring tape or an object next to the balloon when blowing)


2. Tie 2 of them together to make 6 pairs.

 Pick the balloon colour you like to put together,  blow them up to similar size, tie 2 balloons together to make a pair

3. Pick 2 pairs, stack them on top of each other like a shape of cross, twist the joint to join them together to make one set, then level them. (Don't worry if they move, as long as they join together)

4. Repeat step 3, make three sets.

5. (You will need some space in this step) Open the ribbon, place it on a flat surface, then place first set from step 4 on top of the ribbon. 

6. Place the second set on top of the first set (rotate 45 degrees), pull the ribbon around the balloon gaps up and down several times to tie them together. 


7. Place the third set on top of the second set (rotate 45 degrees), pull the ribbon around the balloon gaps up and down several times to tie the 3 sets together, pull tight until the base is stable, tie a knot, the base is made.

8. Blow up the number balloon.

Place the number on top of the base, find the best position then stick it onto the base by using glue dots, you may need several glue dots on the front and back to make it balanced.

9. Blow up the colourful stick balloons, leave some space in the end without inflated, tie them around the number balloon, tie knots on the back.
