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.

Tips:
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.
