> Rice
> Paintbrush
> Cotton balls
> Paper towel rolls
> Black, glittery felt
> Masking tape
> Scissors
> Glue (we recommend both white glue and a hot glue gun)
> Paint (we recommend actual craft paint versus Crayola washable)
> Aluminum foil

Instructions

Take the aluminum foil and cut that it makes enough for both ends of your paper towel rolls. You will want to fold each piece for each end about four times, so it is thick on the ends to help keep the rice in. Place one on each end of a roll, and use the masking tape to keep them on.

Next, add 2-3 spoonfuls of rice into each roll.

Add foil with masking tape to opposite end of each paper towel roll.

Once that is done, you will use your glittery, black felt. You want to cut two circles – one will go on each end of your rolls. We discovered with our thick fabric that it was easier to use a hot glue gun to ensure that it would stick. Be sure an adult does this task if you decide to use hot glue!

With the felt piece on each roll, we began to paint our rings. We used Crayola washable paint, which we discovered made for multiple coatings of paint. I would recommend a thicker paint to prevent multiple coats needing to be done. If multiple coats end up being needed, wait for each coat to completely dry before going to the next step.

Once the paint is dry, you will take the Elmer’s glue to place cotton balls on the end that doesn’t have the felt.

Next, add a thick stretch of glue above the felt and add the gold glitter.

Once the glue and glitter are dry, thread some bells on the gold pipe cleaners and tie above the felt (mine decided to leave theirs off).
