DIY Toy Leather Drum


This toy leather drum is a really easy and cute craft to make as a gift for a young child. Mini versions would also be cute as favors for a child’s music party.
You could experiment with drum sticks too. I was thinking felted pom poms attached to chopsticks? Could be a cute addition!

Step 1: Take a large clean can and remove both flat ends with a can opener.

Step 2: Cover with paper and tape together

Step 3: Cut two round pieces of leather so it will hang over the edge about 1 1/2 inches

Step 4: Punch 8 equal holes with a leather hole punch tool

Step 5: String thread through the top and bottom tight and tie a knot at the end


What a cute, easy craft! My son was just asking for a drum the other day and all we had were a pair of bongos we bought in the Caribbean before we had kids. This drum would be better for him:)

This is so cute! Like the idea of making mini ones for a music party
