Found Object Wind Chime

I haven't been participating in craft swaps as much as I used to. Especially now when things are just so busy around the house now that warmer weather is starting to set in. It's hard to believe that in another 2 months it'll be time for our annual camping trip with the family (here's hoping for a sunny, dry week that week).
But when I saw a swap for a wind chime, I couldn't resist. My mom has a small obsession with chimes and they are all over the house, inside and out. This was the chime I made for my swap partner.

For the Found Object Wind Chime/Mobile swap over at Craftster
Everything I found for it was out of my stash or from around the house. The spoon was up cycled from a previous chime that had broke. The long metal pieces were left over from our kitchen remodel. They are the extra pieces that came with our pendant lights that I had drilled holes into.

It was a lot of fun to create. And hubby seemed to like it as well since he's put in a request for another one. 


  1. Gorgeous... I may have to make one for myself. I love it.

  2. Hi Michele,

    I really like your windchime. Is the moon shaped piece made of wire?


  3. Hi! Thanks!! I think it's actually a wire macrame hoop. I found it mixed in with the macrame hoops hanging on a peg at the craft store.
