Heads up. Anybody can make balloon animals, but you'll be at the "top" of the list with this elephant balloon hat.

How to Make an Elephant Balloon Hat:

Step 1: Inflate three balloons, leaving a two-inch tail on each.

Step 2: Fold one balloon into a big ring. To fit smaller heads, do not bring the loop end to end. Pull back the ends a few inches for a snug fit. Pinch and twist-lock.

Step 3: Using the twist-lock as the back, wrap the end of the second balloon around the first balloon. Pinch and twist-lock.

Step 4: Bring the end of the second balloon to this twist-lock. Pinch and twist-lock.

Step 5: Repeat steps three and four once on the other side to make the second ear.

Step 6: Inflate a fourth balloon, leaving a two-inch tail.

Step 7: Pinch and twist-lock the end of the balloon to the back twist-lock of the hat.

Step 8: Pinch and twist a bubble one-third down balloon. Bring twist to front of hat. Pinch and twist-lock.
