Remove bottom of spring pan (if using spring pan) or remove lid of cookie tin, we will refer to this as the “frame”
Lay a strip of packaging tape tightly across the diameter of your frame and a second perpendicular to the first (shown below)
Continue to place tape tightly across the frame in star shaped pattern until you have a completed surface - you will need a lot of tape for this!
Take your bamboo skewers and bunch them together into a cylindrical shape, Tape the center, top, and bottom of the skewers to secure in place - cut off the pointy tips and shape into a smooth edge
Tightly wrap the rough end for better grip. Cover at bottom of stick with small piece then wrap around like a tennis racket or baseball/softball bat
Play your drum!
