How to Make a Windsock

Step 1: Fold the top of the paper bag down on all sides to create a cuff.

Step 2: Decorate the bag with a summer theme like the sun, flowers, trees etc.

Tip: You won’t see this drawing once you put on the streamers, but you will see it when the wind blows the streamers around.

Step 3: Cut several different lengths and colors of the streamers. Tape these to the inside of the cuff and around the bottom of the bag.

Step 4: Punch a hole on each side of the bag. You can use tape or paper reinforcements to make the hole stronger.

Step 5: Thread some string through the holes and tie in place.

You can also decorate the cuff of the paper bag with some ribbon to add a bit more fun and color. Now simply hang your paper bag windsock from a hook outside and watch in blow in the wind.
