Design and fly a beautiful fabric windsock! This one is decorated with traditional Chinese symbols.
Research Chinese culture, symbols, and traditions. In ancient China the carp was a symbol of endurance, perseverance, fortitude, and good luck. Choose Chinese symbols with which to decorate your windsock.
With Crayola® Scissors, cut white 100% polyester fabric into a piece large enough for a windsock.
Design the carp. Cover your art area with white paper. On the fabric, use Crayola Fabric Crayons to draw the head of a fish (carp) with two large eyes at one end. Fill in the area near the head with colorful scales. On the rest the fabric, draw stripes in various colors.
Set the colors. To make an ironing pad, place white paper or newspaper over an iron-safe surface. Place fabric on ironing pad. Top the crayon design with white paper.
Ironing should be done by an adult in a well-ventilated area. Set iron on synthetic. Press design with slow steady pressure for 1 to 2 minutes. Lift iron to move it. Hold paper in place to prevent blurring. Remove paper carefully. For more intense colors, add more crayon while the fabric is still warm. Decorated fabrics can be machine washed, using warm or cold water and a gentle cycle. Do not place in dryer. *Overheating or scorching may release irritating fumes.
Assemble the windsock. Fold over the top of the fabric, near the head of the carp, to form a pocket. Leaving a small opening, use Crayola School Glue to attach the turned-over edge to the back of the fabric. Air-dry the glue.
Push a chenille stick through the opening. Twist the ends together to form a circle. Fasten another chenille stem across the circle for added strength.
From the bottom of the windsock, cut between each stripe up to where the stripes meet the scales.
Tie colorful ribbon or yarn on the chenille circle for hanging.
