My mom's 40th birthday was yesterday...

I needed something funny for her to wear that wouldn't offend her "over the hill" status...


So I made one out of twisty balloons... I'm a face painter, and my boyfriend is a balloon artist... He taught me the basics, and this was one of the first balloon hats that I've ever come up with on my own!  yay!

hope you like it!

 i love it!!!  i make balloons myself, and could never *really* get the hang of the whole twisty thing you have there for the base.  it looks awesome!  balloon hats are the best, cause you can make them soooo big and ridiculous  Tongue

I LOOOOOOOVE it!

I love twisty balloons!  Sometimes I just make hats and wear them around my house.  I would have never thought of making numbers out of balloons though.  Thats really great!

Thanks!

Twisting two balloons together is easy.  Secure two 2-60's together and then, starting at the bottom, twirl the balloons together and twist the ends together with pinch twists.  Then join the ends together... ta-da!  twisty base!
