How to make a Homemade Den Den Drum


  • Wooden spoon
  • Drill
  • Threat or string
  • Beads


  1. Drill two small holes about 1 cm apart in the center of the spoon head. 
  2. Thread the string through one of the holes and tie a knot to avoid it from slipping back through the hole.
  3. Thread the beads onto the string and tie another knot to stop the beads from slipping off.  Cut off any excess string.
  4. Repeat steps 1. and 2. for the other side of the spoon.
  5. Decorate with paint or stickers.
