While I am on vacation my good friend Lisa from Two Bears Farm has been kind enough to guest post for me! I really appreciate it and I hope you are all having a great week!! I know I am!!
I'm so excited to be guest posting on My Mad World, because I love all the crafty ideas here. Nicole, I hope you're having a super time on your vacation!
This week Pierce and I made rain sticks. These are easy to make and can be as simple or as ornate as you want.
We recently stocked up on multiple colored duck tape (I was making some duck tape change purses) so we decided to use that. But alternatives would be to paint your tube, use tissue paper, crayons, or stickers.
We wrapped the tube in duck tape - each piece was around 7 inches long. I let Pierce do some of the wrapping, so it's not perfect but he had fun with it.
Then you need to cut end pieces for the tube. I traced the tube on a paper plate and then cut out the pieces. I duck taped the first piece on.
Then we filled our tube with about 1 tbsp of bird seed. You could also use rice or dried beans. After that we duck taped the other end piece on.
Voila! Tribal fun!
Stop by Two Bears Farm sometime to say hi - I'd love to hear from you!
Thanks so much again Lisa! Sounds like a lot of fun!! Pierce is too cute in that picture!!!
