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.

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.
