I found some very pretty table knives for $1 each. How could I pass that up? Surely I could use the handles for something fun. Why not an upscaled version of childhood bubbles?
Look for old or new knives with hollow handles. Some knives have solid flat handles that won't work for this application.
Place the middle of the 18" length of wire over a large wooden dowel. This is a closet pole but a broom would work just as well. Hold the ends then twist the dowel for about 5" or however long you wish your wand to be.
Thread one end of the wires through the bead and twist the other over it. I cut the ends about 1" long, pushed them into the end of the knife handle then used epoxy to secure them.
I made the labels by altering some from the Graphics Fairy. Download the labels here. I printed mine on glossy sticker paper, but copy paper will work. Spray the labels with Krylon's Workable Fixative so that the print won't run when it comes in contact with the bubble liquid.
Bubbles were never so chic or so over the top.
