June2009Drums-4th-of-July-EJ-MC-BAC000The drums are Quaker Oatmeal boxes covered with fancy paper.  I filled the drums with dried beans & rice for a little added noise making fun.  The straps are made from thick ribbon— simply slip ribbon in small hole on each side and tie a knot inside the drum to secure.
