As I promised in this post, I am going to show you how I made my Patriotic Mini-Windsock.
With just a few standard supplied, I came up with a red-white-and-blue craft for Memorial Day.
First: paint a bathroom tissue tube blue.
Cut one strip of construction or scrapbook paper (white) 1″ wide x 6-1/2 inches long.
Cut one strip of construction or scrapbook paper (red) 1″ wide x 6-1/2 inches long.
Glue each strip around the tube as shown in the photo. Hold the paper to the tube for a few seconds to be sure it stays where you want it.
Cut red and white strips about 1/2″ wide by 8 inches long. Glue to the inside of the tube.
Punch two holes near the top of the tube.
Feed the ribbon into the hole and tie a knot in each end.
There! You’re ready to hang your windsock!
