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!

After searching my DIY – Kids Pinterest board for ideas, I came across a cute, beaded bubble wand. So adorable, but there was no tutorial … so decided to make my own!

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.

DIY Bubble Wand: Supplies | Hello Little Home #craft #kids #bubblesWant to make your own DIY bubble wand? Here’s what you’ll need (affiliate links):

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.

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.

The length should measure about 5 inches.

Trim any excess wire with the cutter and smooth any sharp edges with the pliers.

    Keep trying to make these but the bubbles pop before leaving the sand. Any advice on what I’m doing wrong?
