I recently began making wind chimes, sun catchers, and mobiles out of recycled materials.
The first two took way too much time and effort as I was trying to lay them on a table to work. So I designed this simple, but effective, stand so I can hang them from the top and work on them as they are going to hang.
Total Time: 1 hour
- 1 10 ft PVC pipe ($3.25)
- 1 PVC cutter
- 1 hammer
- 2 elbow couplers ($4.50)
- 2 tee couplers ($6.50)
I was able to borrow the PVC pipe cutter and already owned a hammer.
- Cut your pipe into one 12" piece for the top, two 42" pieces for the sides, and divide the last piece into 4 pieces that come out to be "about" 6" each.
I originally designed it to have 4 4" stands vertical from the 6" stands so there are more elbows and tees there than I needed.
- Assemble the 2 elbows on the top and sides, connecting the 3 pieces.
- Using the tee's, put your stand legs on in the opposite direction of the stand pieces. These are easy to tap in with a little hammer. You don't need glue.
