My second entry to the San Diego County Fair was in the spirit of their theme this year: Music Mania. I decided to make a little marching band of instruments. This was the first time I worked with metallic pipe cleaners, and I'd have to say, they were a bit messy to work with! They're essentially made of tiny bits of tinsel and they are very rough. Certainly not soft enough for my usual fuzzies!
I made a tuba, a drum, and a flute. They're all walking in time to the conductor. The sheet music that they are marching on is for "America, the Beautiful." I thought this was a rather patriotic piece, and kind of funny. I'd never made instruments before, but I thought these were cool for the first try! =)
Hope the judges like them!
