How to Make Rainy Day Bubble Wands

Double Top DIY Bubble Wand

Pick up two chenille pipe cleaners and twist the bottoms together. Add blue and green beads by threading them on both pipe cleaners at once and pushing them down towards the bottom where you twisted the ends together, creating the bubble wand stem. Twist the pipe cleaners together above the beads to secure them in place. Loop the remaining lengths of the pipe cleaners into two separate loops and twist the ends to the wand stem to secure.

Single Raindrop Topped DIY Bubble Wand

Twist the ends of three pipe cleaners together. Braid the pipe cleaners together for a length of about 3″. Add beads spelling out the word rain, then continue braiding the rest of the pipe cleaners together until you reach the ends. Create a rain drop shaped loop with about three inches of the braided pipe cleaners and secure the base of the rain drop by twisting the pipe cleaner to the stem of the diy bubble wand.
