Step 1: Glueing

First, take the bottle cap, and cover the edges in hot glue. Then, attach it to the center of the CD. Once done, cover the edges of the bottle cap in more hot glue to seal it.

Step 2: Holes

Once you're done glueing, take the bottle cap and start drilling holes in it, you can choose what size hole and how many there will be. I did 5 holes since i had a small drill bit.

Step 3: Blow Balloon

Once you're done with the first two steps, take the balloon, inflate it, twist the neck, and carefully stretch it over the bottle cap. Let it untwist itself and watch it hover as you push it around!
