Garden windchime craft

So much of our summers are spent outdoors - biking through the neighbourhood, hiking through the ravine, long walks to the swimming pool, playing at the playground, splashing at the splash pad, soccer at the park, running through the sprinkler and playing in the sandbox, drawing with the sidewalk chalk and climbing trees and building forts. It only makes sense to take some of our crafts outdoors as well.

This windchime craft was easy and fun. Wooden dowels and stainless steel washers from the hardware store, fishing line and acrylic paint and glitter glue from the craft store. It took a little fiddling to get the bits of wood and metal all strung together properly, but decorating them was a blast. A quick coat of clear outdoor varathane once the paint and glittter dried made them safe to live outdoors - hopefully hanging off our soon-to-be-finished second-storey deck.
