Introduction: Hot Glue Bubbles!

In this Instructable I will show how to make hot glue bubbles!!! The bubbles made are like the bubbles you get from the CD bubble project but with less hassle and simple tools! This is my first Instructable so be sure to leave feed back on how I can Improve them in the future! I haven't seen this method of making bubbles before! I hope you vote for me in the Hot Glue Contest!

Step 1: What You Need...

To make the hot glue bubbles you will need:
A Hot Glue Gun (With extra glue sticks if needed)

Scissors

Wire cutters

And some wire!

Step 2: Step 1:Get Snipping!

First cut an small length of the wire and wrap it once around your finger as in the picture

Step 3: Step 3:Twisty, Twisty!

Then twist the wire so it forms a small loop as in the picture.

Step 4: Step 4:Now the Fun Begins!

Add a liberal amount of hot glue to cover the 'wand'/loop you have just made and make sure it covers the whole thing thinly with no holes,.being careful not to allow it to come into contact with your skin.

Step 5: Step 5:And Blow!!

As this step implies blow at the centre of the wand and the hot glue should form an bubble before your very eyes! Dont be put of if your first few bubbles don't work as you will get better as you try and try!!! Any way hope you enjoy this Instructible and you vote for me in the hot glue contest!

    Sorry for not replying, the glue cools very quickly as its is so thin when the buble is being formed

    Great! first! Instructable!!! I! think! you! need! to! use! more! exclamation! marks! though!!! :D

    What are the properties of the hot glue bubbles, once cooled? I assume they would collapse under weight. Could they be suspended from a string? Thanks.

    The Bubbles are cling film like and and will stick to glass hands etc. however when peeling off often the bubbles break and they go saggy. as for you question about the string It would probably work what i found i is if I left the bubble on the wand and tried to get an strand glue attached to the bubble and let it cool then use it to move the bubble around!

    Great first Instructable. I never knew you can make bubbles with hot glue. Definitely going to try doing this soon. :)

    This is really cool. I never would have thought this is possible. Thanks for sharing.
