I applied generous amounts of glue on both ends of all the skewers.

When the glue was dry I carefully cut the skewers with wire cutters.

Here is the finished tube with all the skewers cut.
My tube was 30" long and 2 3/4" in diameter.

Next I covered one end of the tube with the bottom of a margarine tub and used masking tape to secure it.
A piece of cardboard or heavy plastic will work to cover the end also.

To achieve the sound of rain falling I use about a 3/4 cup of aquarium gravel or rice.
I prefer the gravel as the sound is louder.
The amount will vary according to the width and length of the tube.

I covered the other end of the tube as I did the first end.
