-Can similar to a large Pringle's can or mailing tube
-dry ingredients such as rice, cereal, beans etc.
-clear contact paper
-decorative scrapbook paper
-double stick tape
On the Pringle's can there was a diagonal seam that we followed. We simply hammered the nails in around 3 of the seams creating a "spiral staircase of nails" inside. No need to be even about anything - just eyeball everything. The inside will look like this:
Fill with about 1/4 of the dry goods.
Using double stick tape, adhere the scrapbook paper to outside of can.
Use the clear contact paper to cover and seal the lid to the can.
Very slowly tip the can from one side to the other and you will hear exactly why this is called a rain stick! Maybe with all of the snow that we have been experiencing, Busy Bee and I are hopeful that a Spring rainshower is just around the corner!
