Balloon Art: How to Make Sword? - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. The very first simple shape that I am going to make for you is a balloon sword. So let me grab a balloon. Let me get a different color, one that does not match my shirt so well. And I will show you how to make a basic balloon. I am going to use my floor pump this time, just to make it fast and easy. And you want to blow it up almost all the way, just a little tip at the very end. Maybe let a little air out so you have a little room to twist. Tie a knot. All you want to do is twist a tiny bubble at the end. Then you want to make a loop, like this, and then twist that together like that. So, almost like you have a little dog head, and dog ears like that. Then what you are going to do is you are going to make a series of four bubbles. You want to hold this first bubble so it does not untwist. You want to twist four bubbles like this, and then take the end of the balloon and twist it right through. Pull it right through that big, giant loop, and then you have a very simple pirate sword.
