Vintage Sifter Wind Chimes

I found this fabulous vintage sifter and used it to make a wind chime. I love repurposing things into fun features in the gardens.

I wasn't sure how aluminum measuring spoons would sound, but they tinkle so lightly and sound really pretty,

The vintage Bromwell's sifter was just perfect for this wind chime project. It has a great patina and will continue to age nicely outside.

I used vintage aluminum and copper measuring spoons as the chimes. They sound so pretty in the wind and because they already had holes there was no drilling required.

    This gave me an idea to do mini-chimes using some old tin jello molds that have been laying around for far too long. I don't think I'll use mixing spoons though  ... maybe... keys? or a mix of crystals and some old chime bars (very tiny) that we had on some inexpensive chimes that went bad and we reclaimed for just such purpose. Now, where did I put those???
