This page will eventually be an article about how to use a tri-string. In the meantime, here are some videos that will help you get started.

These videos of my then 3 year-old son Jakey give you a basic idea of the bubble-making technique with garlands and tri-strings.


  • Keep the wand dips together when dipping the wand AND when raising the wand.
  • Raise the wand tips high before opening the wand
  • Stand with the wind at your back (if there is any). You want the wind to carry the bubbles away from you.
  • If there is no wind, walk backwards.

This video is not ours. The recipe is not ours and is a bit detergent-heavy for our tastes. Also, with a heavy wick like the one used, we would not recommend using a weight/washer.
