DIY Bubbles: Make Your Own Bubble Party Favors

How cute are these itty bitty colored bottles?  The pretty colors screamed “summer” to me, and one of my favorite summer activities to do with my kids is to blow bubbles.  So I put the two thoughts together and made these adorable DIY bubbles for custom party favors!

Favors-DIY-bubbles-Crafts-UnleashedSince these are glass bottles, these DIY bubbles are not really appropriate to use with young kids, but they would be beautiful as favors or table decor for an outdoor wedding or maybe even a sweet 16 party.

Favors-DIY-bubbles-Crafts-Unleashed-1The bubble wands are easy to make, and while I opted for a heart shape, you could make other designs, too.  Here’s how:

Favors-DIY-bubbles-Crafts-Unleashed-2Supplies needed to make your own DIY bubbles:supply-list

Step one:  Place the plastic pegs in the Thing-A-Ma-JIG as pictured.  Cut a 15 inch length of craft wire, and loop it around the pegs to make a heart shape.  Start with a loop in the center, go up and to the left, down to the bottom of the heart, up to the right, then loop again in the center.

Favors-DIY-bubbles-Crafts-Unleashed-3Step two:  Twist the ends of the wire together to make a rope-like handle, and clip off the excess.

Favors-DIY-bubbles-Crafts-Unleashed-4Insert the “handle” into the cork by gently twisting it in.  If you have trouble inserting the wire, make a small hole first.

Step three:  Make sure the heart fits in the bottle.  You may need to make it narrower so you can insert and remove the bubble wand easily.  Fill the DIY bubbles bottle with bubble solution.

Favors-DIY-bubbles-Crafts-Unleashed-5If you want to embellish the cork, use Mod Melts to make a pretty flower or button end cap.  (I have a detailed tutorial on how to use Mod Melts here.)  You can press the cork end into the hot glue and let it cool, or glue the cooled Mod Melt embellishment onto the cork.  I decorated my “caps” with glitter paint.

Favors-DIY-bubbles-Crafts-Unleashed-6I used some craft paper and a bit of twine to add a little tag to my adorable DIY bubbles.  The tags could be inscribed with a name, “Thanks for Coming,” a date, or any other message.

Favors-DIY-bubbles-Crafts-Unleashed-7I tested the bubble wands out and yes, they work!  Your party guests can have fun blowing bubbles, taking fun pictures with these as a photo prop, or just taking them home as a cool party favor.  How would you use your custom made bubble bottle?
