The 365 Day Challenge

My goal is to create something every day using something from my craft cupboard. I am a self-confessed fabric addict and just love to fossick through thrift shops and find treasures.

So here goes. Live, love, recycle and get crafting.

Day 9 - Japanese twirling drum

Had a fantastic day today but now we are very tired from our road trip to see The Wiggles!

Inspired by the concert we went to this morning, Aidan and I decided to make something with a musical theme.
Flicking through the 'I can make music' book by Michael Purton, Aidan decided he wanted to make the Japanese twirling drum. The book was published in 1996 and we picked it up at Vinnies so I'm not sure if you can still get it but here's how to make it.

Craft cupboard materials

- round cheese box
- glue
- coloured paper
- string
- beads
- pencil
- tape

You just take the cheese box and put a hole in both halves to insert the pencil. Then you tape the two halves together and tape the pencil to ensure it stays in the holes. Next, you cut out 2 different coloured paper circles to glue to the sides. Underneath the paper you can glue the string to one side with a bit hanging on each side. Tie a couple of beads to each end of the string. Roll the pencil between your fingers. Sounds pretty good! You can listen to the video below.
