My first project that I started on were for the take home favors. I needed something affordable, cute (Star Wars can be cute, right??), and that matched the theme. So, I hopped in my car with my littlest in tow and headed to good old Wallyworld, where I found these bubble wands for a dollar each. Inspiration struck. They look like light sabers, right???
I rummaged through my garage until I found the black spraypaint and then picked up some silver at Walmart for less than $5.
First, I unscrewed the lid and stood the bubble wand up in a cup. Then, I spray painted the top part black. I used a paper towel to cover the actual white plastic wand part.
When that dried, I put painters tape over the middle and spray painted the two ends silver. I took the tape off while it was still wet.
I let them dry overnight and then added a little red jewel as the on button. I love how they turned out, and most importantly, my son loves how they turned out!
One project done, a million more to go!
