Why I Never Throw Away My Broken Jewelries

5 Materials
20 Minutes

Don't give up your broken jewelries, but turn them into a fancy decoration for your backyard!
You can't imagine their potential until you see this totally free and easy to DIY project!
Place a bead or a painted key in the middle of a 8 to 10 inch piece of fishing wire, then use both heads of the wire to thread the rest of the beads or broken jewelries. This is how you make small necklaces in different lengths (mine are 4 to 6 inch long) that you will later use.
Hang these necklaces to the tree branch, leaving a small distance between them.
Wrap the end of the wires around the branch and secure them with knots.
Wrap the string around the tree branch covering the fishing wire coming from the hanging necklaces.
This is my fancy wind chime, and my favorite backyard decoration.

Suggested materials:

  • A small branch from a tree (8 to 10 inches long)
  • A piece of string long enough to wrap around the tree branch from one end to another
  • Fishing wire - one piece 8-10 inch long for each hanging element
