Windchimes Make it Feel Like Summer
May 18, 2012 § 4 Comments
While it’s only May, the weather has been unseasonably nice here in Oregon. Usually “April showers” are followed by torrential rain in May. Don’t ask about June, I can’t handle it right now.
So while I have been chirpy and excited about being outdoors before July, I thought I would make some summer wind chimes.
They turned out pretty cool! And not nearly as hard as I thought they would be.
Look how BLUE the sky is!!!!
(yes, those are plastic flamingos by the pond. cheesy I know, but I just love them!)
This one I made with seashells I got from the Dollar Tree. It takes forever to drill holes in them!
I tried using the trick of saturating string in acetone, wrapping it around the wine bottle, lighting it on fire, then dunking it in water to make it break. THAT didn’t work. Hmph. Perhaps because I used yarn? I’m going to get some string and see if that works tomorrow. Has anyone else tried this?
It’s supposed to rain tomorrow, so this shall be the end of today’s blog, so I can enjoy the last rays of sunshine out there. 🙂
