Last year I put together a new wind chime from old broken ones. It still is all in once piece and with a great sound. Now I want to try to make another wind chime. These old parts are not from broken wind chimes but from paint can openers, a chain, fishing line and what's left of an old metal decoration.
The metal decoration is from an anemometer. It was only a decoration not an actual working instrument. But the cups should still catch the wind and turn the wind chime. It will be suspended from a chain. The paint can openers will cause a twinkling sound as it spins. When the chain is twisted enough it will spin the chime in the opposite direction.
I can attach the paint can openers directly to the arms:
Or I can use fishing line to let them swing:
I'll let you know how it turns out later this week.
