In the Mexican culture a Posada is the equivalent of caroling only more like a party at every stop!!
While Posadas aren’t held by our local communities it’s important to me to keep up the tradition with my kids and we have a mini posada party at home.
During a Posada there is music and sing alongs. To acompany any song and to keep to the beat I thought it would be fun to create Felt Posada Tambourines for the whole family.
- Felt Base- in any shape and color $1.97 each at Walmart
- Glitter Poms $2.47 at Walmart
- Jingle Bells $2.97 at Walmart
- Bead wire $2.97 at Walmart
- Hole puncher- the smaller the hole the better
Punch holes around your felt base. We left a space between each hole of approximately 1.5-2 inches.
Adults- Cut wire about 2 inches long
For each wire you will need one glitter pom any size and one jingle bell
Kids pass the poms and jingle bells thru the wire. The poms are very easy to poke through the wire and the bells have a place for them to be attached to crafts.
Secure the wire onto the felt base. we twirled it around a bit until secure.
TIP: Adults carefully cut off the excess wire to have a clean finish
Continue the steps until all your holes have a pom and jingle bell through them.
Make your as colorful as you want. Our glitter poms pack had 5 different shapes and colors!
Make different shaped tambourines for everyone in the family. Skip the poms and add two jingle bells for more noise!
Now let’s get ready to make music for our next Posada!
Love our DIY Pin us to save for later!
