How to make bubbles! A fun lavender bubble tutorial

Now, I realize that the weather has cooled off a bit in some places (and it might even be snowing where you are). However, here on the coast of California, the weather is still lovely! So, in celebration of the Christmas season ending and the crisp skies outside, I decided to create something that was inspired by nature. Plus, you can’t eat it! Let’s be honest here, after all of that holiday food, doesn’t it sound nice to go outside and play? Exactly! DIY lavender bubbles are perfect to relax your kiddos while playing outdoors.

I have a lot (a lot) of lavender growing! Here is a picture of the lavender in my front yard. This lavender has inspired me to make so many things on my blog!

To make the DIY Lavender Bubbles, you only need a few simple ingredients:

A bubble container
Pipe cleaners
Lavender scented dish soap (I found mine at the dollar store!)
Sugar
Food Coloring

To make the Lavender Bubbles:
Combine 4 cups of warm water with 1/2 cup of sugar.
Once the sugar is completely dissolved, add 3/4 cup of the lavender dish soap
Add 1 drop of blue food coloring and 3 drops of red food coloring
Store in an air tight container

To make the DIY bubble wand:
Create a circle near one end of the pipe cleaner and twist any extra around the stem of the pipe cleaner (so easy!).

Have you ever made your own bubble solution? There are so many ways you can do it. Keep in mind that your dish soap might be a little different than mine and that’s ok! Simply add more or less as you see needed. The same goes with the food coloring! Some lavender dish soaps are more purple than others, so if you just add a little at first, it can’t go wrong!

  3. These look amazing. I might try the bubbles for my wedding! Is there any concerns about staining your clothes?

  4. I’ve been obsessed with lavender for quite some time. This looks fun to make, but the lavender sugar scrub you have also looks just as inviting to make. Thanks for the awesome post!

  5. I’m visiting from Tip Me Tuesday. I love these bubbles and I am so jealous of that gorgeous lavender bed you have growing. I’m in Florida and I just can’t get lavender to live through the summer rainy season.
