The 4th of July is right around the corner. I saw these red and blue bubble wands for $.99 at Party City and I thought, these are so adorable I can totally do something festive with these! Then it came to me... these would be super cute "Firecracker Bubbles" boy where my wheels turning.. I thought all I need to do is tie some red, white and blue curling ribbon on these and maybe some festive star garland for a extra touch of firecracker. I used sparkling ribbon, you can never have enough sparkles, especially when making something look like a firecracker!
I mean come on... this little project is so easy and affordable. I spent around $20 for everything and had plenty of ribbon and garland left over for future projects. I purchased all the materials used at Party City.
We host an annual 4th of July cookout at our house and I bought a bunch and figured I can use them as a fun activity to entertain all the kids during the BBQ. They look so cute and can be used as centerpieces at the cookout. These Firecracker Bubbles sure give you a lot of bang for your buck see what I did there :)
This project is so easy with supervision you can totally have the kids help!
Here's what you'll need:
Red and blue bubble wands from Party City
Red curling ribbon
Blue curling ribbon
White curling ribbon
Loop 2 strands of each color ribbon through the hole at the top of the bubbles and tie them in a knot. Then loop 2 longish strand of garland through the hole at the top of the bubbles and twist it around to secure it so it stays upright, cut it if necessary to desired length. Curl the ribbon. That's it. So. Easy! Now go enjoy those Firecracker Bubbles!
Check them out! I mean how FUN!!
