Idea: go to a fishing store, preferably one that carries stuff for off-shore fishing. They have TONS of beautiful fishing line, believe it or not. I bought some by the foot that's braided (so small you can't tell without looking very closely) and it's like 80 pound test line. Those shakers or bottle aren't coming off that! And it was rainbow colored. Also fishing line is water-proof which is huge bonus IMHO. I've had some really nice chimes come apart after one season because whatever they used for string fell apart after being out in the elements. That's what gave me the idea to use fishing line in the first place. Great idea and so pretty.

Do they chime? It seems they move in unison with the wind so no chime. They're not chimes if they don't chime :) Nothing in the video shows if they chime or highlights the chime. Please amend or comment. Won't attempt this without knowing that they do, indeed, move against one-another and create a chiming sound in the wind.

I'm sorry, I couldn't hear what was the cord you used to tie these on? Very cute idea...
