Bubble wand 1: T-shirt wand:

Products needed for this DIY project:

1.      Old t-shirt

2.      2 wooden sticks

Let’s get started with our instructions for making our first bubble wand!

Take a simple old t-shirt and cut it into strips across the width. Once this is done, take two wooden sticks and tie the ends of one of the T-shirt strips to both the sticks. Your T-shirt wand is now complete!

Bubble wand 2: Mop head wand:

Products needed for this DIY project:

1.      Floor mop

2.      Fishing polls

Let’s get started with our instructions for making our second bubble wand!

Detach a mop head from the long handle and cut off the seam that is holding the strands of the mop together. Lay the strands of the mop flat on the ground and intertwine them together as if you’re making a braid. Attach this mop braid to the ends of two fishing poles. You can even use a hook to attach the mop to the fishing pole. Your mop head wand is now complete! Dip it in the bubble solution to make the giant bubbles of your dreams!
