Paint a mini spool light blue and the top red. Let dry. Draw a design around the outside of the spool with a permanent marker. Break a tooth pick in half. Paint both halves. Glue an “e” bead to end of each to make a drumstick. Open up a coiless pin all the way out. Slide the painted spool on the pin. Glue the drumsticks to the spool.
