Repurposed Measuring Spoons Wind Chime

I have so many boxes of this and that….stored because I couldn’t think of anything to do with it.  Today I decided to try making a little wind chime, something Sunrose Gallery has plenty of ceiling space to display.

I purchased the measuring spoons from a clearance rack and the red ceramic pieces from Goodwill years ago.

STEP ONE:  Make a swirl for the top of the wind chime to hang.

STEP TWO:  Bend 8″ pieces of 18 gauge wire in half forming a loop.  Thread each loop into the intersection of the bottom of the loop above like the photo.

STEP THREE: Cut 9″ pieces of 18 gauge wire and fill with silver toned beads with red bead accents.

STEP FOUR:  Make a loop at the end of each top wire and secure the bead strands to each end by curling it shut.  Add one bead strand to the middle to make it clang!

It was fun to use up these supplies that have sat around for years.  YAY!
