Another Simple Halloween Idea (favors)

I have more than a few milk jugs from various places. I've been able to recycle a few of them and turn them into some cute Halloween decorations. See here and here.

Here's another idea that I think is really cute (and easy and cheap). Bubbles.
My kids love bubbles. We go through lots (more than normal, I think). WalMart has their summer stuff on clearance. I picked up 2 big bottles the other day for .75 each.
I have a few milk jugs that are clear & I thought it would be cute to use them as bubble bottles. I needed a wand - pipe cleaners! I had a stash of black ones.

While it was drying, I taped a strip of scrapbook paper around the bottle.
I shaped my pipe cleaner and filled the bottle with the bubble solution.
*I know there are tons of homemade bubble solutions..but I chose to take the lazy road.

Use a ribbon to tie on the wand and.....

I spray painted the lid.

These are so easy (the longest part was waiting for the lid to dry) and so versatile.
You can use any size bottle.
If I were making these as party favors, I would use a smaller bottle
- more bubble for you buck.
You can use any paper/ribbon/label/tags.
It really is a great little favor that isn't too expensive.
And if you're real crafty..
you can shape your bubble wands into fun shapes
(I've mastered round and heart).

Hope you're enjoying getting ready for some spooky days ahead! Visit back tomorrow for Feature Friday!
