DIY Beaded Bubble Wands
Late summer is all about soaking up the final rays of the summer and starting in on fall and winter crafting season! This activity combines both for a fun do-it-yourself activity you can do all seasons.
- Pipe cleaners
- Assorted beads
- Bubble World Bubble Fun Refill bottle, or Bubble World individual bottles, depending
- Hot glue gun
- Shallow plastic bowl, plate, or Frisbee
This activity is so easy, and perfect for a rainy day. Make the wands indoors, then bring them outside on a nice day to practice your bubble-blowing skills!
To make a large blower, first, string as many beads through a pipe cleaner, or a few pipe cleaners braided together, if your beads allow it. When your pipe cleaner is as bejeweled as you like, make it into a circle and either hot glue the ends together or wrap tightly with the pipe cleaner end. Next, make a strong base out of several pipe cleaners braided together (and beaded, as you like!) Affix the base to the wand with hot glue.
For smaller wands, make a small circle with the end of one bejeweled pipe cleaner, and loop it back in to the longer piece (this will form the base.)
