or 4th of July or any patriotic holiday! I love these and can’t wait to make one.

Memorial Day decoration

Materials Needed:

Plastic coffee can lids, marker, scissors, string

1. To make one, use a nail to poke a hole in the center of a plastic coffee can lid.

2. With a marker, draw a spiral that starts 3/8 inch from the hole and gradually extends to the rim, then cut along the line with scissors. Fourth of July Twirlers

3. Knot an end of a piece of string, thread the other end up through the hole in the center, and the twirler is ready to hang up and spin.

To spin, grasp each one at the bottom, twirl it around and around until the string is wound tight, let go and enjoy the show.

    Bev, This is a cute idea. 4th of July is coming up and I might have the kids try this out. I know I have a lot of these cups laying around.
