These gorgeous DIY bubble wands are so much fun to make! Aren’t they just beautiful with the beads catching the sunlight? Plus, they work remarkably well with our homemade bubble solution.
As a DIY project, this doesn’t take much in the way of materials — simply pipe cleaners, beads, and wooden dowels (although popsicle sticks or natural sticks from the backyard would work, too).
If you’ve been wondering how to make a bubble wand, here’s how we made them…
DIY Bubble Wands with Beads
How to Make DIY Bubble Wands
- String beads
Start by stringing beads onto a pipe cleaner.
This is a great fine motor activity for little hands, too!
- Attach pipe cleaner to the dowel
Once you have your beads strung onto the pipe cleaner, twist it onto the end of a dowel.
You can add a bit of hot glue from the glue gun to make sure they stay in place.
We took the wands out to the garden with a bowl of homemade bubble solution. And blew bubbles!
We love the extra big bubbles made with these wands!
Ah… What would summer be without bubbles?
