The drums are now a top pick at the Studio since I've given them a makeover. These colorful favorites are easy for anyone to make at home, so save a containers, and enjoy personalizing your own instrument.
- Oatmeal or formula can
- Fabric scrap
- Beads (optional)
- Hot Glue
- Large Needle
- Carefully hot glue a scrap of fabric to your container with the lid on. Run the bead of hot glue along the top of the container where any staining of the fabric will be hidden by the felt. Fold the raw edge over and glue in place.
- Trace two circles in the felt about an inch larger than the container, and hot glue them to the top and bottom of the container
- Use the needle to lace the two circles together. You can lace beads onto every other stitch if desired. Carefully tighten the laces before knotting them and trimming.
