Outdoor Wood Chimes

I was looking for something simple to do with Miss 2 who wanted to paint.  We had a pile of sticks outside so I grabbed some sticks, some paint, some glitter and away we went.

We painted the sticks, sprinkled glitter on them while the paint was wet.  The paint acts like glue for the glitter.  Then we let them dry.

Once they were dry we hammered a nail in one end and another nail into a beam of our cubby.  We tied string on the end of the nail and then to the nails in the cubby.

Presto homemade wood chimes.

  1. So simple, so effective. We have lots of painted rocks selected from the abundance in our front garden, but I haven't figured out what to do with them. Welcome to ideas!
