Where do you all find nifty centerpieces for your homemade wind chimes? I am so not creative, so beyond gluing a couple flat sticks together or old CDs drilled around the edge, I have no idea where to find these things. Thanks for any help!

Have you thought of using old teacups, or mugs? Just take a glass cutter and make a hole for your wire.

I was making wind chimes a year or so ago. I used empty tin small boxes that candy came in such as certs and different kinds of mints. I also used Fishing Anchors or weights . So many things you can think of to use.
