Introduction to the Swan Balloon Animal
The balloon swan is not difficult to make, but getting the neck right can be rather tricky the first few times that you make the balloon. As you gain experience with balloons through practice, you’ll find that this part will become easier. A key thing to notice with this balloon animal is that the uninflated end of the balloon becomes the swan’s “beak.”
To make this sword, you'll need to know how to make a basic balloon twist and three balloon push through the twist.
- One 260 Balloon
To start, inflate the balloon and leave about five inches uninflated at its end.Continue to 2 of 5 below.

Make the Neck and Head
Take the remaining balloon and curl it up and hold it. You’ll have to experiment with how long to hold the balloon in place but you’ll find that the neck will eventually hold a curved shape.
Once you’re satisfied with the neck, allow the remaining balloon - about one inch - to form the swan balloon’s “beak.”Continue to 5 of 5 below.
