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! There was no tutorial, so I decided to make my own.
- 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.
The length should measure about 5 inches.
Trim any excess wire with the cutter and smooth any sharp edges with the pliers.
Tip: the wire is flexible, so if the wand gets bent out of shape during use, just straighten it back out.
