Mother's Day is literally right around the corner! The 13th to be exact so today I thought I would show you a inexpensive and unique gift you can make yourself that the mother in your life will love!
Yeah for DIY Thursday!
- Tools: hammer, pliers that cut wire, and a punch tool ( or any sharp object like a nail)
- Essentials: Chain, loop findings of any kind
- Spare Parts/Junk: Anything you can find that is metal and interests you! Get creative!
- Base: I used an old tin jello mold that I got for a dollar at a thrift store but cookie cutters or anything you can think of will work!
My spare parts were things I had laying around like a key, old toy xylophone pieces, mini souvenir spoons, and dresser parts.
This will be my main item that helps create a beautiful sound!
It took some time but it balanced out a lot easier then I thought. I also used vintage glass prisms which cast and reflected colorful light on the ground while I put it together. Kind of an unexpected ahhhh moment. :)
And there you have it a one of a kind found object wind chime for your Mom! I would have given this to my mother but I know she is probably reading this post so I will have to surprise her with something else and keep this for myself!
So what do you think... gonna give it a try?
Almost Friday!! Any plans this weekend?
