Mondays, Shelley and I junk. It just is what we do. Anyway, we found this great bunch of aluminum bowls. One large gold one and 6 smaller multi colored sherbet bowls. As you can see from the following photos we changed our $2.50 purchase into a sparkling, clanging windchime that is.....well crazy and fun and colorful.
We drilled holes in the bottoms of the smaller cups. Took the pedestal off of the large one and drilled holes along the lip to hang the smaller ones. We then used buttons to secure fishing line into the center pedestal through the hole into the large bowl, then through the smaller gold one and added an acrylic sparkly for the clanger in the bell portion. We tied knots in the fishing line to secure the distances between the pieces.
GK then strung sparkly acrylic beads to add to the "trashy treasure" look of our very OOAK windchime. Yesterday, we had sustained 35 mph winds with gusts of 75 mph....our new windchime let us know it was a blowin' big time.
This weekend we will paint the mushroom table, put up the shelf and hopefully hang some windows......pictures next week.
Have a lovely weekend. Oma Linda
