Project #108 : Hand Drum


Hand drum by Véronique from Pichouline

What you'll need:
*small cardboard box
*craft paint
*cord – I used a cotton cord
*wooden beads
*wooden stick
*awl or you can use a very sharp needle
*stamps and stamp pad
*masking tape – double-sided tape


Step 1:
Make 3 holes in the box. One in the bottom of the box, this will be used for the wooden stick. 2 holes on the left and right of the box, opposite each other, these will be used for the cords.
Step 2:
Use the masking tape to decorate the wooden stick, you can choose the colours and pattern yourself.
Step 3:
Paint the wooden beads, allow them to dry for a couple of minutes.
Step 4:
Decorate the front and the back of the box using different stamps.
Step 5:
Cut 2 cords. Make sure the beads will touch the side of your box when twisting the hand drum around. Put the cord through the hole and finish with a knot.
Thread the bead on the cord and finish with a knot.
Step 6:
Secure the bottom and the cover of the box using double-sided tape.
Put the wooden stick through the hole, you can put some glue around the hole.

To play the drum, twist your hand around and see and hear what happens!

Have fun!
