Our 9 drummers drumming ornaments are very similar to the eight maids-a-milking ones we did yesterday.
I saved up plastic juice bottle caps of various sizes and colors.
I hot-glued the ribbon to the underneath and to the sides so that it would make a little drum.
At first I just glued the ribbon under, but then the cap kept flipping over. I had to glue to the sides to keep it looking like a drum.
Next we took juice box drinking straws and cut them into mini-drumsticks.
Juliet glued these onto the tops of the drum using elmer's glue.
When finished, they looked something like this.
Then, we glued some sequins onto the sides to give them a little more sparkle.
