Picture of Build Time!

Step 1:
Eyeball the middle of the can and punch a hole using a nail or screwdriver

Step 2:
Tie a loop at the end of the shoelace/cotton wick

Step 3:
Insert the shoelace/cotton wick in the hole of the tin, making sure that the loop is big enough to secure it in

Step 4:
Moisten the shoelace/cotton wick

~ its crucial that the wick must me moistened in order for this to work.

Step 3: How to Play "it"

By grasping the tin firmly and using your free hand to pull the shoelace/cotton wick, you should be able to make all sorts of weird noises. ~or you could just watch a clip I posted here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJ2TAflSxC0

with a little practice you can make evil laughing sounds and all sorts of noise this Halloween.... Just don't for get to moisten the string. ~ Enjoy :D

If you use a wet leather lace, it makes the sound of the female moose in heat (no I am NOT kidding! my uncle uses one of those as a Moose Call when he goes hunting!) =D
