Recycled Rainbow Windsock


I'm having a bit of a Rainbow LOVE affair!!
To celebrate a fine Spring day we decided to make some Rainbow "windsocks" for our tree!
Keeping it super simple, cheap, colourful and fun.

To make your own you will need:
tin cans, (any size)
primer
paint, (in rainbow colours)
varnish
ribbon
glue gun & glue stick
nail and hammer or drill
string


To begin prime your tin can…I used gesso to prime ours…you could just as easily
use white paint.


Then, paint away with rainbow colours!!  Leave it to dry…
when it's totally dry put on a coat of clear varnish.
(we used an outdoor varnish)


Then use a nail and hammer, or a drill to put a hole in the top of your can.


Cut your ribbon to whatever length you please.


Using a glue gun, glue the ribbon to the inside rim of your can.



String it up and enjoy.

While we're waiting ever so patiently for things to bloom, 
these make our bleak yard look so so lovely!

Rainbow love!!!!
