Very cool and patriotic! What type of wire do you use for your windchimes? I would like to make some as well, but I'm unsure of how to string them. Thanks for sharing!

Love the planted cream pitcher! Makes a great looking center for the chimes! Like your heart shaped trellis too. TFS Jan

Thats so cool! I love it that you have plants planted in the chime too. Portulaca is a good choice I'll have to remember that.

Thank you all. I used heavy fishing line to put the parts together. It is easy to work with. Yard sale treasures at its' best! Enjoy! Jlily

Fishing line. Well just duh! (color me stupid). I use fishing line for EVERYthing, and ESPECIALLY in the yard. Many moons ago, I made a candelier (as opposed to chandelier) from an inverted wire planter. The instructions called for wire to string beads, which I had on hand. I mindlessly followed the instructions & used wire. *Mindlessly* being the key word here *sigh*

My chandy didn't last long even though it was under the carport somewhat protected from the weather:( Dunno what I was thinking...oh wait...I WASN'T! Thanks, jlily for triggering the face palm, lol. You just provided me with my weekend project. I'm off to dig out my bead supply now..

Sheesh! Where are my manners? Your planter/windchime is lovely. I've got a stash of unidentified metal parts, tons of beads & am facing a 3-day weekend alone. Surely, I can work more than one lil project into that time frame, dontcha think? And hubs will definitely appreciate it when he returns from his trip.

thanks again
