Hey! First off, this is my first Instructable and honestly, the creation is not super exiting. Just don't expect a perfect guide, it's my first try.
OK. The product of this Instructable is a toy that you can make for cheap, is fun to play and can be carried anywhere.
Step 1: Tools and materials
First, take a look at the plan for the project below. You might not see what meterials are used where, but that's not a problem. To build this project you will need:
1 small glass jar with metal lid (the ones with pesto are typically about the right size).
1 disposable eyedropper.
1usual drinking straw.
4 to 6 plastic beads of 0.5cm3 and one of ca. 1cm3
A glue gun
Gluesticks for the glue gun
Min. 17x17 cm. of tulle (I belive that's what you call it?)
A thin flat clear plastic lid, min 19x7 cm.
All stuff that you have a good chance of finding around your house. Let's get constructing!
Step 2: Clean the jar.
Clean the jar, the lid and the eyedropper firmly with normal dishwash so it's not greasy. Make sure there is no soap left afterwards.
Step 3: Remove the label
You will want to remove the label(s) from the jar so you can clearly see into it. Do this easily by scrubbing it with a rough brush under warm water.
Step 4: Make a hole in the lid
Hammer the big nail thruough the lid on a hard surface, then pull it out. Check with the straw if it fits through the hole. Be careful not to bend the lid so it wont screw on, that wouldn't be lovely.
Step 5: Make the hoop
Now we are gonnamake a little hoop that you can try to get the beads into. cut out a rhombus-like shape (see the picture), and fold it down the middle as shown.
(Tip: warm up the glue gun now so it's ready for the next step)
