Canada Day Wind Sock Craft

Happy First Day of Summer!
Canada Day will soon be here, and I created this craft which is a super FUN project  for kids...and the best part for Moms? This craft should take up most of an afternoon and with kids finishing school soon, that is a GOOD thing!
This crafts starts with a recycled can and lots of bits and bobbles that you may even have around the house
Let's get started, shall we?
Here are the supplies you will need:

 -recycled can, with 2 holes, one on the top of each side for hanging with twine.
-white spray paint or craft paint
-red maple leaf cutouts {see below}
-red beads or red ribbon for trimming top & bottom of can
-ribbon or streamers or yarn in red & white, cut into long lengths about 12-15 inches long
-white school glue, or hot glue
1. Paint cans white with spray paint or craft paint. Let dry.
2. Print the red maple leafs on the sheet below and cut out. Glue the maple leafs to the can however you wish. Kids can have fun here!

3. Glue beads or ribbon around the top and bottom of the can as shown.
4. Turn the can upside down, and glue ribbon, streamers or yarn lengths to the inside of the can as shown.
5. Attach twine to the can as shown for hanging the can.
Now the kids can hang their completed craft! 
This is such a fun decoration for Canada Day, or the Fourth of July, or just for fun!
I think it looks so pretty hanging in a tree, don't you think? I love the ribbons!
