Makes everything so much more fun
I spent the day covered in paint
and all sorts of glitter
and thought that maybe I would make a new windchime
I would love to share my shiny new treat with you
It arrives just in time for a spectacular tea party
Yes soon Miss V. from A Fanciful Twist will be hosting her
Lovely and Magical Annual Tea Party.
Of course being the head of a
Mad Hatter Secret Society of my Own, and
also living on the Other Side of Wonderland.
I must join in the fun every year.
She is soooo very wonderful and her parties are just
So make sure to stop by for a Spoonful of Mad Tea
Now for our Whimsical Glitter Spoon Windchime
It is really quite simple
All you will need is some elmers glue
an assortment of your favorite colored glitter(I used Martha Stewerts line)
but any would do. I would think the finer would adhere better though
Then some old spoons.
Thread or fishing wire
a wire hanger or other type of hanger
and other embellishments to your liking
Here we go
First bend your spoon to be able to tie the thread to it
also it looks more whimsical this way
Next coat the fat part of the spoon with glue
I just smear on with my fingers
Next sprinkle the glitter all over the spoon and tap off the excess
It loves to fly around though and dust the entire room or my head with glitter
quite often. Mischievious little one
Let dry while you finish the other spoons
Then take a coathanger or other circular object. I guess you could use a stick or straight rod as well.
It just depends on the look you want
I covered my hanger with some leftover tinsel stars that I had from Christmas
Next take three strands of thread and attach at different areas on the hanger
This is going to be what hangs it from the ceiling or wherever else you would like
Let them hang at different levels for more interest.
Then just have fun with whatever else you want to add
hanging threads, and a little more around the top of each spoon
Maybe later I will add some crystals and more sparkly things.
But for now it is looking lovely hanging on my backporch above
a lovely Tea Party Table.
If you have any more questions just drop me a line and I would love to
see what whimsical and wonderful windchimes you created.
Here is a little sneak at a new gypsy art piece that I am working on now
I love toadstools
