Making a Flute by Hand

By May 22, 2014Art

Ever wanted to try Making a Flute? We’re going to teach you how, with a little twist. The first step is to cut out a piece of a cardboard roll to the size of a flute. If you want to make it colorful, draw a few designs on the cardboard as well.

The Art of Making a FluteOnce you are done creating your design, you will want to make a mouthpiece and six finger holes. They need to be very small. Roll your cardboard into a thin coil and flatten it with your fingers. Remember you want it to look round and thin, just like a flute. Secure the flute with glue and let it air dry. The next big step is to make a pretty looking tie around it. You will need to make a tassel from yarn and tie it tightly around the flute. Once that is done, you have completed your art form flute. Try it out and make sure it works.

Supplies required:

  • Cardboard roll
  • Strong glue
  • Yarn
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
