Show off your love for gardening by hanging a wind chime made of mini watering cans on your deck or from the eaves of your gardening shed. Add as many strands of buttons as you’d like, or even add more miniature cans for a bigger wind chime sound.
Difficulty level: Easy
Time to complete: 30 minutes
Age range: 10+
Things to do:
1. Thread a button onto one end of the thread and knot the thread, then glue in place.
2. Add other buttons to the thread and tie off. If desired, keep them in place with hot glue along the length of the thread. Create at least two threads of buttons, but you can also have more. Leave enough thread at the top to tie onto the watering cans.
3. Add the strings of buttons to the can handles.
4. String the cans together at varying lengths so they’ll clank together with themselves and the button strings, to create the wind chime sounds.
