My first inspiration came from the Pirongia Markets which a group of us went down to look at and I saw these for sale and decided I could make them myself and it wouldn't cost me as much.
With a 9 month old formula fed baby, we always have lots of large cans just sitting there doing nothing so I finally turned two into drums for the aforementioned baby - as in the Little Drummer Boy (or girl in this case)
The paint job isn't that flash but then she isn't going to care. And I would normally decorate my craft a lot more, but I know the way babies' minds work and even if I used superglue she would have it unstuck and in her mouth within seconds. So I err on the side of caution...
