This DIY Bubble Wand is an easy and super fun project that will keep your kids busy all summer!
I loved playing with bubbles when I was kid. There is something about blowing and chasing bubbles that is so fun, and I knew my niece would love a DIY Bubble Wand!
These DIY bubble wands are so easy to make. You can easily put together multiple wands in under an hour. Plus, they’re a great way to use up extra or random beads.
- 20 gauge jewelry wire
- round nose pliers
- needle nose pliers
- wire cutter
- bead board
- beads of various sizes and shapes
- jump rings
Start by cutting a piece of wire about 18 inches long.
Wrap one end of the wire around your round nose pliers to create a loop. Leave a least an inch of extra wire on the end.
Hold the loop closed with your needle nose pliers. Grab the short end of the wire with your round nose pliers. Use the round nose pliers to pull the wire and wrap it around the base of the loop 2 – 3 times (see below).
Trim the excess wire with the wire cutter. Press the cut end against the long wire smoothing out any rough edges with your pliers. Set aside.
Next, lay out your beads on the bead board. Play around with the placement – mixing colors and alternating big and small beads – until you come up with a pattern you like.
The length should measure about 5 inches.
Trim any excess wire with the cutter and smooth any sharp edges with the pliers.
To attach the charm, open a jump rings. Place the wand’s small loop and a charm on the ring. Gently twist the ends of the jump ring shut with your pliers.
