Beaded Fairy Bubble Wands for Barbie (or 18" dolls)

Barbie says she's ready for spring. And what's a princess's favorite outdoor activity? Blowing (and chasing) bubbles of course. Let's break out our stash of beads and pipe cleaners (and maybe some ribbon for streamers tied to the wand) and whip up a pretty Fairy Bubble Wand for Barbie. It's a project girls can make for themselves or this would be a fun little surprise to tuck into a plastic egg at Easter too.

I know what you're thinking... Will a wand that small really make bubbles??? 
Ha, ha-why yes, yes it will!
I love bubbles:@)
There's a link to all of my Barbie posts on Pinterest HERE.
Directions: 
  1. Simply push beads onto pipe cleaner (Barbie is fond of the blingy tinsel pipe cleaners). One larger novelty bead on top is extra fun. Just try to make the circle of beads around an inch or so, to keep it in scale with the doll.
  2. Shape the beads into a small circle and twist both ends of pipe cleaner together to form "stick" of bubble wand. Keep the stick long enough to bend around her hand.
  3. Adjust the circle so it's centered on top of the straight "stick" of the pipe cleaner.
  4. Tie thin ribbon around base, below circle, so it flows in the breeze if desired.
  5. Dip in bubbles and have fun:@)
I'd like to thank From Glitter to Gumdrops for the inspiration to make Barbie a new toy. You can stop by to see how Christy made full size bubble wands for little girls HERE. A wand for your favorite little girl and matching wand for ~her~ favorite Barbie (or 18" doll) would be a special gift!

Make something just for fun and have a happy day:@)

  1. This is way too much fun! Super cute and I love your Eagles green wreath in the background. Well, maybe it was for St Patrick's day but Eagles is the first thing that popped into my mind :)

  2. The bubble wand is too clever, Lynn! I'm noticing your wreath, also, and your boots, that I hope you won't have to wear much longer. Hope you're off work tomorrow!

  3. Adorable Lynn, I got a kick out of the bubbles too! Hope spring is on its way and its flip flop instead of UGG weather soon. ♥
