Supplies: 
  • Oatmeal container or a recycled container (in the shape of a tube)
  • Construction paper
  • Rubber bands
Instructions: 
  1. Cut the bottom of the oatmeal container to create the tube for your drum.
  2. Place the tube over a piece of parchment paper and draw a circle at least 1-inch away from the edge of the frame so there will be room for affixing the parchment paper to the frame.
  3. Using safety scissors, cut 8 pieces of parchment paper in a circle according to your measurements.
  4. Apply a layer of glue over the entire side of one side of parchment paper and lay another piece of parchment paper to the first one.
  5. Repeat eight times total so you eventually have a thick layer of glue and parchment paper together.
  6. Place the drum tube over the center of the parchment paper and apply glue to the exposed parchment paper.
  7. Bend it over the drum tube and apply rubber bands to hold the paper in place until the entire drum dries.
  8. Decorate the drum in any way you wish.
