DIRECTIONS : 1. Cut top off one bleach bottle leaving bottom between 6-!/2" to 7" high. Take second bottle and cut off bottom 1-1/2". Force this shallow piece over open end of first bottle so that you have a drum with both ends covered. 2. Paint Indian design on sides of drum. 3. Cut 2 circles of leather or old inner tube about 1/2" larger than top of drum. Make holes with punch or ice pick around edge of both pieces. Be sure that they match up and that you have the same number of holes in both pieces. 4. Place drum in between both circles. Loosely weave, lacing up and down through holes. Tighten lacing gradually. 5. Beaters: Fasten wooden bead to one end of dowel stick. Use a small tack or glue to secure. Place a square of cioth or Art Foam over bead and secure ends by wrapping chenille stem or wire around stick.
