Cub Scout Wind Chime
By: GSLC Posted On: 2009-08-16

Materials needed:
Styrofoam ball,
clay pot, blue,
yellow and white felt,
yellow fabric,
blue pipe cleaner,
twine,
wooden spool,
wooden wheel,
and hot glue.

The diameter of the styrofoam ball should be just a little larger than the
bottom of the clay pot. Turn the clay pot upside down. Cover the clay pot
with blue felt (Scout shirt). A few slits may need to be cut so that the felt
with fit snug at the top of the pot. Cut out two blue sleeves and attach white
mittens to the sleeves. Glue the sleeves to the pot with the seam of Scout
shirt in the front. Cut the yellow fabric into a square. Fold the square in half
to form a triangle (neckerchief). Use the pipe cleaner (slide) to tie the fabric
together. Poke a hole through the ball. On top of the ball cut blue felt in
the shape of a hat (round circle with a small brim) and a yellow felt curved triangle in the front.
Draw a face on the ball. Cut a piece of twine about 24” long. Thread both ends through the ball
and down inside the pot. Attach the wooden wheel and spool to the twine. Tie the 2 ends of the
twine together leaving enough extra so the wooden wheel and spool can work as the chime. Glue
the ball (head) to the pot (body).
