Though it is made from forks and spoons, it still has a beautiful tone. It's fun to make too!
Step 1: Gather Materials
- Tin soup can
- Two Forks
- Two Spoons
- Washers or Large buttons
- Sheet Metal (I didn't have enough so I just used card-board rapped with foil)
- Two Twist-ties
- Medium-sized Nail (small enough to fit inside the can)
- Fish line
- Larger Nail (To poke the holes with)
- Metal saw
- Glue Gun
Step 2: Make the Holes on the Can
To make the holes, you can put a nail on the can and pound it in with a hammer. Or if you have a drill you can do that to. ;)
If you are going to do button eyes, you'll have to make two more holes on the sides of the can, about an inch from the top, (the opening). I used a vise to do this, because without one the nail doesn't go in; the can just bends.
Step 3: Getting the Utensils Ready
Tie the fish line nearest to the prongs on the forks.
The spoons will be tied as high up as possible on the handle, (if it doesn't get large enough at the top, you'll have to drill a hole).
