How to Attach Bells to a Spin Drum

Learn how make a spin drum in the second video of a two-part Howcast series with Music Moves Me.

This is part two of how to make a spin drum. Now that we have our spin drum made with the holes in it and the dowel, we are going to get some yarn and we’re going to cut the yarn about the length of the dowel. Then, we’re going to thread through holes that we put and we’re going to wrap it around the dowel like so. I’m going to do it securely. It’s going to wrap around, pull it tight, and you’re going to pull it through the other hole. Once it’s through the hole, we are going to get some jingle bells and we are going to attach the jingle bells. We’re going to take the yarn, and we’re going to slide the jingle bells through the yarn and tie it on each side. Once you have both the jingle bells on both sides of the yarn, then you can tie them and then this is what is sounds like. What you’re going to have to do is take the caps of the Pringles container, the plastic caps, and on both sides secure them. It’s going to sound like this. Now, we have a spin drum.
