Bubble Wands

Steps:6
Blowing the perfect bubble depends on equal parts science and magic. With a few twists of wire, you can make fantastic bubble wands and spend long, lazy days practicing your technique. The best bubble solution is 10 cups water to 4 cups dish-washing liquid, plus 1 cup Karo corn syrup.
Materials
  • Plastic-coated wire coat hangers or floral netting or plasti-coated chicken wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Needle-nose pliers
  • 8-gauge cloth-covered wire
  • Tin can

Silk-Flower Party Lights

Steps:3

Materials
  • Miniature holiday string lights for outdoor use
  • Silk poppies or other flowers (one for each bulb) with removable plastic stems and centers, available at crafts stores
  • Scissors
