Key Wind Chime

4 Materials
3 Hours

I had a bunch of keys I saved over the years. I just hated to throw them away. ( I know who saves keys? ) on one of my treasure hunts to the thrift shop. I found a wire basket. and then the big light bulb moment popped into my head! a Key wind chime is what I needed for my screened in porch! I had some artificial flowers around the house that needed a home. I stopped by the dollar store and picked up some green ribbon & brown yarn and a coco basket. took them home and made my key wind chime. I first made it with the green ribbon then made it again with the brown yarn.

This is the wire basket I found. I gave $2.00 for it coco basket was about $2.00 & the yarn was maybe $3.00 give or take. The green ribbon I first used was only $1.50

Then I put the coco basket in the wire basket and tied the keys all over the yarn

    Why is it we just can't throw away keys? This is a great idea and I'm going to do it. I think I might also paint the keys. I loved the basket with the colored string. Great idea. Thanks.
