Vintage Sifter Wind Chimes

2 Materials
2 Hours

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.
