DIY Bride: Make your own bubble favors

I came across this tutorial on how to make your own bubble tin favors and wanted to share - how adorable are these? Originally, this was blog post showed up on Hostess with the Mostess for a 2nd birthday party - but I thought it would be great for a wedding too (and easy!). Have fun with this!


6” Tin Cans, found at Specialty Bottle
Pink Pipe Cleaners, found at Michaels
Bubble Solution, found at iParty or you can make your own bubble solution
• Raffia, found at Michaels
• Full Sheet Label Paper, found at Office Depot
• Computer / Color Printer
• Paper Cutter
Download and print out the template for the bubble labels and trim just under and above the pink lines (so that the lines show) and horizontally at the end of the pink lines.
2. Adhere to the tins using as light of a touch as possible so you don’t leave fingerprints.
3. To create the pipe cleaner wands, shape the top of the wand into a circle, then twist the end around the handle.
4. Measure your raffia to about 18.” Holding the pipe cleaner in place, wrap the raffia around the wand and the tin, tying in a bow at the front.
5. Fill the tins about 1/2 full with the bubble solution 


  1. The tins are subject to rust with any eposure to water!!! Be carefull as these tins are not desinged for this use.

  2. Thanks for the tip!! I am wondering, then, if adding a little extra step would be useful: you can purchase a sealant type product (in a spray can) a a store like Home Depot. You could spray the anti-rust agent, let dry and then do the bubbles (or just look for a non-metal container). What do you think?
