Picture of 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!

Hi I'm wondering if you have any idea how long they will last? Needing a tub full for Halloween prop. Thinking maybe I could spray them with a sealer of some sort?

I tried it, but couldn't get the glue to stay on the loop enough to fill the hole. I even tried dipping the loop into a pool of hot glue. Any tips?

This is sooooooo cool!

How hot is the glue when you are blowing the bubble? I did not see safety glasses.

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

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!

Could also use a small straw to blow into a glob of the melted glue.
