How to Make a Balloon Sword: Materials Required

Before you set out to make a balloon sword, you should gather the required materials first. The following are the materials to consider:

  • Balloons: The main attraction is the balloons! For this project, you will want at least two long, thin balloons. Typically, balloons of the same size work best.

  • Balloon Pump: Using a balloon pump will facilitate quick and simple inflation. If you're up for a quick workout, you can also use your lungs.

  • Scissors: To trim the extra balloon and provide a tidy finish, use scissors.

  • Permanent Marker: This is optional. Permanent marker is used for drawing interesting designs on your balloon blade.

How to Make a Balloon Sword: A Step-by-Step Guide

Let's get down to business and figure out how to make your own balloon sword:

  • The balloons should be inflated first, allowing about 1 inch (2.5 cm) of space at the end so that they may be tied off.

  • Next thing to do is to attach the ends. Take the two inflated balloons and attach the ends to form a loop. This will serve as the sword's hilt. Make that the loop is tight.

  • Additionally, twist the Balloons. Twist both balloons together to form a single twisted segment, about six inches from the tied end. The handle of your balloon sword will be made of this twisted piece. Keep it firmly in place.

  • Shape the blade. Take one of the balloon tails and curl it around the other balloon at the top of your handle. It can be turned around several times to create the sword's blade. You can choose the blade's length based on your preferences.

  • Once you are satisfied with the blade's length, secure it by twisting the remaining balloon around the base of the blade. Trim away any extra balloon to create a tidy finish.

  • However, you can decorate (optional) if you want. If you want to give your balloon sword a unique touch, draw patterns on the blade or the hilt using a permanent marker. Be imaginative and personalize it to reflect you.
