Bottiglie Bacchettate

Thought up by Lorenzo Ferrulli


a percussion idiofono and it makes a joyful sound


2 glass bottles

adhesive tape


hot glue

2 drum sticks

a plastic tray


hot-glue gun

tissue paper

felt-tip pen


I took 2 bottles and the teacher glued them to the tray with a hot-glue gun. I tied them together with a piece of string. I took the tissue paper and wrote the name of the instrument on it with the felt-tip pen and then attached it with adhesive tape to the string. I cut out little squares of tissue paper of different shades of green. I took the little green squares and, using a pencil with glue on the end, fastened them on the tray to look like a grassy lawn.
