Step 1: Parts for the bubble maker
2 wooden dowel rods
2 eye screws
a few washers
For the dowel rods i used 3/8" by 48" long $0.84 each
The cotton cord is braided cotton cord 1/8"x45' $2.97
Eye screws are 1 1/16" $2.99 for a pack of 12
washers i had lying around
So for around $8.00 you have one and enough supplies to build more if you buy more dowel rods.Witch i recommend because when the other kids on the block see huge bubbles they come running, believe me.
Step 2: Assembly
2) cut two lengths of the cord one 70 inches the other 100 inches
3) slide a few washes to the middle of the long cord ( needed for weight ) i used 3 small ones
4) tie one one of both cords to one eye screw and the other ends to the other screw
TA DA your done! what you should have now when you hold it up is a upside down triangle see how the washer hold down the bottom length of cord.
