Silverware Windchimes

Materials:

Use old silver silverware for the best "sounds", and usually they are more ornamental than what you find in a dollar store or such.

  • 1 fork
  • 1 spoon
  • 4 other forks or knives
  • Fishing line
  • Drill and small drill bit
  • Pliers

Directions:

Drill small holes in the handles of each utensil.

Using the pliers, bend the tines of one fork out in each direction (think west, north, south, east), and then curl the ends upwards. Tie a length of fishing line to the spoon. The spoon will hang in the middle, so tie it to one of the middle tines of the fork, as close to the center of it as you can get. Next, tie a length of fishing line to each of the other utensils and hang them from each curl of the fork.

The sound of the chime is beautiful. If using the knives, the sound will be lower. Other forks make a tinkling sound. You can let the spoon hang naturally, or bend the ladle part up so as to hit the other utensils more frequently.
