windchime project

doodys(9)August 28, 2010

this is a metal plate that I'm making a wind chime out of..I use metal buttons that had a flower design on them for the center.I painted the flower and and the stems and I'm going to cover the petal with blue glass and maybe clear crash grass for stem.I will be using pieces of plastic sundae spoons,glass,and some metal bells for the end.I salvaged all the spoons even the ends that are shaped like flower petals..

Looks like it will be lovely! The metal plate is very attractive the way you have painted it & looks like added buttons for centers! Very creative but won't it have to hang in the shade as I think plastic will fade(spoons)? Jan
