Enchanted Bubble Blowing Wands Tutorial

Supplies: A piece of 16- or 18-gauge round wire: 9″ (23 cm) long for the larger bubble wand, OR 6″ (15.25 cm) long for the smaller bubble wand. I used copper and brass wire; you might also try Artistic wire. A 6″ (15.25 cm) piece of 24 gauge round wire, for attaching the beads to your bubble wand. Colorful seed beads (or other beads / embellishments you want to add to your wand). Wire cutter. A file, cup burr, or knife sharpening stone for smoothing off the wire ends. Round nose pliers. Flat nose pliers. Chain nose pliers. Ring mandrel (or a dowel, PVC pipe, pill bottle, chair leg, or other cylindrical object that’s about 0.75″ to 1″ [2 to 2.5 cm] in diameter). Ultra-fine tip Sharpie marker. Click link below for tutorial.
