You will need a 9 x 12-inch piece of card stock, construction paper of craft foam for the base. I find the craft foam lasts the longest and can be kept outside longer. You also need crepe paper streamers. Use a variety of colors for bright windsocks. Now the construction is simple! All you do is staple the 9 x 12-inch base top to bottom forming a tube. Then staple streamers (about 10 - 14 inches in length) to one end of the tube. Decorating your windsock is fun, use stickers, sequins, puffy paint or whatever you like! Finally attach a piece of string about 20 inches long to the opposite end. We hang ours from the tree outside and watch the wind blow!
