.89 one wooden dowel
$1.99 Super Glue
$2 Bottle of bubbles
$3.99 Copper colored aluminum wire
That's only $8.87 for TWO!
You can make any shape wand you want. I wanted two star ones but as you can see it didn't happen. Simply attach the metal shape to the wooden dowel that I cut in half. I super glued the wire to the wooden dowel and wrapped a bit more wire around the wire shape to make it stronger. I then glued some ribbon around all the wire to make it pretty. DONE!
BTW-If you get super glue on your fingers don't freak out. You don't have to use fingernail polish! Just get a sink full of warm water, lather your hands up with soap and rub a pumis stone on your hands. Works like a charm.
Wooden Ring-found mine at Home Depot bag of 7 for 7.99. Found in the curtain department and unscrewed metal clips out of them.
Ribbon-.50 cents each. I used 6
Total cost for the two-$5
How to make them cheaper?
I could of used ribbon I already had
I could of used something different than wooden rings but I liked these.
I did use a beeswax candle (bought from Goodwill) , olive oil from the kitchen and already owned cocoa butter(can leave out)
All items could of be bought from second hand stores
My girls will be very happy on Christmas and it was worth me sneaking around trying to make them. One of a kind items are always better than any plastic toy you can just go buy. Cheers!
