Bubbles are kind of a big deal at our house. If we get them out it is guaranteed that it's going to be about 20 times harder to get Noah back inside.
I had tried my hand at making homemade bubble mixture and thought it would be fun and super cute to make our own wands.
Here's what you need:
- wire (I used 16 gauge)
- beads (I used wooden coated beads like these)
- wire cutters
I cut a piece of wire approximately 10 inches long. I twisted a the end into a secure loop. Then I placed on 7 different sized beads. I liked the length of the handle, but you can add or take away beads to make it how you'd like.
Next I took then end of the wire and twisted it right above the top bead, pushing the end of the wire into the hole of the bead. Work the end of the wand to make a more even circle. If you want to make the heart shaped wand, just press in the middle of the circle and then press the sides in a bit. The wire is very flexible so just work with it until you get your desired shape.
I want these cute adorable bubble wands to last, so I have been rinsing them off after we are done using them and sitting them out on a towel to dry. I just don't want the bubble mixture to get all gunky on the beads.
Noah loves these wands! I am so happy that I took the time to make them for him. This is such a simple diy that is so worth it. I hope you have fun making your own! xo, Britt
