Hello! I love easy summer crafts, and this one fits the bill perfectly! Today I’d love to show you How to Make a Windsock with just a few supplies & tons of fun, colorful ribbon from Offray. This windsock would make a great addition to a little girl’s room or at a summer get together or make a bunch & hang them at your next party. They can be personalized with so many color combinations & are so quick to put together. So let’s get started!

Supplies:

Offray 1 & 1/2 inch Grosgrain Ribbon (red, torrid orange, maize, lemon grass, electric blue, regal purple & royal orchid)
hot glue gun & glue

windsock supplies

First, you’ll wash out & then cut off both ends of a large tin can. Then spray paint the can your favorite color. I chose orange!

After the paint dried. I added some vinyl lettering to mine. You can see a how to cut & apply vinyl lettering tutorial right {HERE}. If you don’t have a vinyl cutter you could paint a design on your can ~ stripes, polka dots or chevron or add stickers even glitter. Get creative! :)

Next poke two holes on opposite sides of your can with a bottle opener & tie on a ribbon handle.
