  • Step 1Choose how long you want your Didgeridoo to be and collect how many rolls you will need. We used five rolls.
  • Step 2Join your rolls with masking tape. Wrap strips of tape around the joins.
  • Step 3Paint your Didgeridoo. You can paint it one solid colour or with different colour sections. For one we used brown paint, for the other we used a mix of black, brown and white. This will provide a base coat for your didgeridoo and cover the joins. Allow to dry.
  • Step 4We decorated our didgeridoos using the dot painting technique and for this method we recommend you prepare your paint by pouring a small amount into craft bowls.
  • Step 5We also drew a rough guide of our design on with pencil but this is not essential.
  • Step 6Gently dab your brushes or cotton filters into the paint and then directly onto the surface to create your patterns using circles, spirals, lines, dashes and dots. You could practice on a piece of scrap paper first. Allow to dry.
