Homemade Wind Sock

This is a great project to repurpose some of those tin cans you have been collecting. Whether you only make one of these DIY Wind Socks, or ten, your friends and neighbors are going to be jealous and want one for themselves! You can choose whatever colors you like best, for this one I choose to go with a 4th of July theme. Other than waiting for your paint to dry, this project is quick and easy to put together. Let’s get started!

Cut each color ribbon into strips that are 3-5 feet long, depending on the size of your can.

Using a hot glue gun, glue ribbons in alternating colors to the inside rim of can.

To make a hole on the top of the can for the ribbon to string up, gently hammer a nail through and remove the nail.

Feed both ends of the ribbon through the whole and tie a knot on the inside to hold it in place.
