Here’s the fundamental, easiest hat to make from balloons. You can make these quickly and the basic hat is useful when you have to make a lot of hats in a short amount of time. These hats are great for kid parties or any event with children (street fairs, block parties, school nights, church bazaars, picnics, etc...).
This balloon hat acts as a base upon which you can add more balloons and make fancier, more detailed hats. This hat also acts as a foundation for more complicated balloon hats that are taught here on this sites such as the helmet and detailed helmet.
To make the balloon hat, you’ll need to have mastered the basic twist (if you want a slightly cleaner look, you may apply a pinch twist instead).
