Default Hand drawn wrap project

Awhile back i picked up this no-name steel snare at a flea market for a real cheap project and i finally decided to do something with it this weekend. I decided to try drawing some calaveras style graphics on butcher paper then had it laminated. I think it turned out pretty decent considering i only have about $25 invested in it lol. It looks alot better i person but anyways here are some pics. all comments and opinions are appreciated

WOW! Don't see that every day. I think it is cool when people do their own customizing like this.

I am thinking of putting a new wrap on my cocktail set. I have never wrapped drum but I am handy with tools, etc. What kind of glue did you use? How did you keep it from bubbling?

I always miss deals like this at flea markets!
They have a music section at mine, where I picked a DW tom stand for 10$ :)

It was actually pretty easy to do, i didnt use any glue. I opted to just use double sided tape because i didnt want it to be too permanent since ill probably rewrap it in the future anyways. The tricky party was to get it as tight as i could so it wouldnt crinkle when i put the hardware on
