Full Answer

  1. Inflate the balloon

    Leaving a 1-inch tip, inflate a twisting balloon, and tie off the end.

  2. Make a basic twist

    Grab the tied end of the balloon in one hand, and with the other hand, twist the balloon 5 inches from the bottom. Do not let go of the basic twist, as it can unwind.

  3. Make a fold twist

    Fold the balloon 3 inches above the twist. At the basic twist, twist the two parts of the balloon together. The first and second twists are now secured together. You do not have to hold the twist in place.

  4. Make a second fold twist

    Fold the balloon 3 inches above the twist. Twist the two parts of the balloon together at the previous twist.

  5. Finish the handle and the hand guard

    The twists create the handle and the hand guard portions of the sword. For the handle, straighten the tied end of the balloon so that it aligns with the rest of the sword. To create the hand guard, straighten the folded portions away from the sword.
