finished ind chimeI have seen so many cool wind chimes on Pinterest and here lately that I had to start making my own. This is the first of many.

Silverware Wind Chime


  1. When I find things at thrift stores now that I know can hang either upside down or right side up, I grab them. In this case I believe this was a candle holder.
  2. First I determined how many utensils I would need. I was short 4, but I didn't let that stop me. Finding real silverware with holes at the end design was a real coup.

  4. As you can see I shopped for bear when it came to having what I needed. Then, I just started in with the basics - the fishing wire. I got 10 lb test line from Zebco and it works really well. I might get a larger/stronger gauge next time but for my first time out, it worked great.

  6. I started out stringing the faux pearls I needed to, then looping the wire over and under twice in the silverware hole, then going back up through the pearls. That took about 2 of them before I realized I could loop through the silverware and then string the pearls on with two strands of line at once. That saved me tons of time.

  8. Once I set the silverware where I wanted them, leaving 4 holes to string just the pearls, I make sure all the silverware was secure. Then, I went to work on the pearl strands alone, mixing the little and the big ones to "sort of" match the ones on the silverware.

  10. I had some very cool shower curtains that had rhinestones spot welded on them. I pried them off to cover the fishing line knots. I had to E-6000 glue them overnight, but it was worth it. They look like they were suppose to be there so that is pretty cool. I used clothes pins to keep them in place.

  12. Once they were done, I hung it on my balcony. I love the sounds that silverware makes so I am going to enjoy them now that I have put in so much work. The next one should be done and on tomorrow!

In case the fishing line was confusing, it means 10 lb. test weight and it was suppose to be 1 oz. Sorry...
