Here is a satisfying, quick DIY for you. We made giant bubbles this weekend. I was kind of amazing. Who knew that by just simply mixing a few household ingredients we were able to make these monster sized bubble gems.
Inspired by the wand tutorial over at the inspiring blog, Clean, we turned twigs into a giant bubble maker. What was great about this last minute project is that we did not spend an extra dime, as we already had all the ingredients. The only thing you may not have is glycerine which you do need as it is what gives the bubbles lasting power.
Giant Bubble Solution
1/2 cup Dishwashing Soap
1/2 cup Corn Starch
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
1 1/2 tablespoons Glycerine
1Quart of Water
Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Set aside and make wand.
Giant Bubble Wand
2 long sticks or old tree branches
String or Yarn
A bead or washer
Tie string to the 2 sticks as seen in the illustration below with the bead or washer in the middle of the bottom string. The bead will weigh the string down. Make sure the middle top string is shorter that the bottom string.
How to make bubbles:
Hold your sticks together so that the string is touching. Dip string into bubble solution so that string is saturated. (If the mixture has separated, just stir it a bit before dipping.)
Separate sticks slowly so that you can see bubble liquid in the triangle shape of the strings. Slowly drag wand until you giant bubbles form.
