My Harp

by Christiana F.
My harp looks like the ancient Greek harp.

I enjoyed making it very much: I used half of a wooden hanger, another piece of wood as a base, some fishing line and sixteen screws with loops on the top.

After cutting the hanger in the middle I took eight screws and put them in a row underneath the hanger.

I used some glue for wood in order to put the two wooden pieces together.

Then I took the rest of the screws and lined them up across the other piece opposite the first ones.

Finally,  I only had to tie up the fishing line across each pair of screws.

This way my harp was made to have eight strings and I was very happy to be able to play it easily with my fingers or my pencil!
