Step 1: Gather materials:
- Baking Soda (aka. bicarbonate soda)
- Hair conditioner
- Plastic fork or spoon
- Elastic Band
- Netting from fruit or vegetables
- Matches or lighter
Step 2: Pour the baking soda (I used 300 g to make 2) into a bowl.
Step 3: Slowly add a little hair conditioner to the baking soda and mix together with the spoon. Continue to add the hair conditioner and mix until mixture has a sloppy thick icing consistency (see video for consistency).
Step 4: Give the balloon a stretch and blow into it (just to stretch it).
Step 5: Deflate the balloon and attach to the end of the funnel.
Step 6: Push the baking soda mixture into the funnel and down into the balloon. Note: DIY artist may need a plastic fork or spoon to help push it down.
Step 7: Fill the balloon to the desired size then tie a knot to secure it.
Step 8: Cut some fruit/vegetable netting to the desired size.
Step 9: Singe the ends of the net with a lighted match just to stop any fraying.
Step 10: Secure the netting over the balloon with a rubber band.
Step 11: Squeeze and play.
