  1. Photos
  2. 6" x 24" strip of thick, light-colored paper, or poster board
  3. Scissors, string, stapler
  4. Crayons, felt-tip pens


Take the strip of paper or poster board and evenly divide it into the number of pictures you plan to draw, or photos you will attach. Color or decorate in between the pictures. Curve the strip around in a circle and staple it so you have an open circle with pictures or drawings on the outside. Take three pieces of string of equal length and attach them to the top of the cylinder in three evenly spaced spots. Tie the strings together at the top and hang.
