Introduction: Wind Chime
I made this from cut offs' pieces of corrugated iron. Inspired by the Helen Hunt's aunt's garden from the movie Twister...a very humble version of what is feature in the film :)
The cut off strips of iron came from another project. Our raised garden bed.
Note: this is not an exact science, you can can cut the iron as long, short, small or large as u like.
Step 1: Need:
Hole/nail punch & hammer
Metal hot plate stand (I found it at the $2 store, it provides good spacing between c'iron pieces, but I'm sure you crafty minded peeps could come up with something a little neater if
Hard vacuum cleaner extension tube
Step 2: Cutting the Iron
If you've not snipped iron before best draw lines to follow and practice.
I cut different lengths and widths then sniped the ends on the angle to get flow.
Step 3: Curling the Iron
Get the hard vacuum extender tube. Once again not a science. Attempt to curl/wrap the iron around the tube, it should wrap somewhat naturally with a bit of muscle...gloves are recommended!
Step 4: Hole/nail Punch
Do what ever works for you but be mindful of the surface you are punching into (wood work for me as a backing)
Step 5: Assemble
Cut a lengthy bit a fishing line (you can always cut it shorter later).
I used clinch knots. Tie iron to swivel and swivel to hot plate stand.
And there you have it, the most clunky and fun wind chime.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
