Dad loves his cricket. There weren’t any “off the shelf” cricket themed balloons available at short notice so I twisted this batsman for the family for their birthday celebration dinner.
After Blackpool Balloon Bash I’ve been inspired to twist some more balloons. I’m not sure my unicorn is going to win any prizes!
I’ve been massively way out of my depth at the Blackpool Balloon Bash but such an amazing group of people to be surrounded by who have helped me out hugely.
I’m not a balloon twister and I’ve no designs on becoming an entertainer but I can see how twisting skills can add to the decor that I do so I threw myself in at the deep end with this weekend. Maybe you can figure out what some of the things are that we made!
It’s been one helluva practice #balloontwisting session for an amateur like me. What would have taken other people ten minutes has taken me hours! Faces still to be drawn in and might add some stubble to the groom as he looks a bit effeminate with that hair but kind of pleased with them for a novice
I’m always keen to learn new things and balloon twisting is on my list to enhance my decor in little ways. I need to practice tons if I’m ever going to make anything that anyone can identify! The twisters are such a supportive bunch of people and I’m grateful for all their help.
This has been a tough training course for someone like me who really doesn’t twist that much but great practice and new techniques learned.
Guess which is my vase and which is the instructor’s from the photos below!
I put my twisting skills to the test to take part in the Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity Trust Merry Mile in Queen’s Park, Crewe.
David’s wings were in Chrome Blue and mine in Chrome Silver, I surprised myself with how well these turned out!
