  2. Pull the neck of the balloon over a tap and slowly fill it with water. Then tie the neck in a tight knot.
  3. Cut out a piece of netting big enough to fit around the whole of the balloon. Then cut a small length of red wool.
  4. Wrap the netting around the balloon, gather the ends together and tightly tie the wool around it to hold it in place.
  5. Carefully squeeze the balloon to make it pop through the gaps in the netting.
