Making them out of wood or PVC means you have more size range.It can be used for any type of music you need, because you can customize it to be your own. You can drill holes into the tops to be able to change the key even more so than you could change it before.
Things you will need:
- PVC pipe/Straws
- If using PVC pipes then you will use screws then a screwdriver is needed
- Any and all decorative things being used
- Patience for things to dry

Step 1: Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
Pretty self explanatory, go to any shops you are going to buy your supplies from or use things from your home.
Step 2: Step 2:Different Colored Straws/PVC Pipe/Hollowed Wood
You can use straws in all one color or make a pattern using different color straws, PVC pipe is pretty uniform unless you can get it in different colors but I am pretty sure it only comes in white. Hollowed wood and what I mean by that is like Bamboo or any wood shaped like a flute but is not a fully working flute.
Step 3: Step 3:Cut Your Material
Cut your material being used in to the size you want, Starting from the largest, going down by about 2-3 centimeters each time or an inch if your using a large piece of PVC pipe.
Step 4: Step 4: Bind the Material
Lay out your material going from largest to smallest, then you can tape, glue, screw it together going from that order
Step 5: Step 5: Decoration
Use paint, glitter, duck tape, any material you want to use to make your instrument your own.
Step 6: Step 6: Dry
If you used any material to help it dry, then let it dry overnight to be 100% safe that no paint, glue or anything will come off now or when you go to play it.
