Introduction: Recycled Beer Bottle Bells

Most instruments cost a lot of money and when you buy them, they aren’t in tune. Making your own recycled instrument will add some creative joy in your life and you're helping the earth at the same time. Follow these steps to create an fantabulous instrument!

Step 1: Items Needed

To make your instrument, the items needed are 6 12 ounce beer bottle, Duct tape (optional), drumsticks or chopsticks, and a Sharpie.

Step 2: Making the Notes

Name the notes (C, D, E, F, G) with the Duct tape and Sharpie on the beer bottles. Arrange the bottles in alphabetical order.

Step 3: Tuning

Use drumbot.com to tune the bells. Make the water level higher to make the sound lower or make the water lower to make a higher note.

Step 4: After Tuning

When you finished tuning, an easy song to play is Jingle Bells. Notes are very easy and fun to play.

Step 5: Have Fun!

Have fun with your new instrument!
