Save some money by making your own colourful wind chime from bottle caps 🙂
- 40-50 pcs of bottle caps
- metal wire
- pliers with wire cutter
- hammer and a punch
- center piece (Anything you think you could use to hang the chains of caps – it could be a vegetable steamer, old CD’s, or a small branch of a tree)
- Fishing Wire
Cut metal wires about 2-1/2 inces long.
Puncture the bottle caps twice with the hammer and punch. Use a punch that would create holes with a size that is just enough for the wire to go through.
Insert metal wire on the whole. Wrap the end around itself using pliers.
Insert the other end on another cap and secure it as well.
Continue linking caps together until you get a chain of your desired length.
Attach the chains you have made to the centerpiece using the metal wires, still.
To hang your wind chime, use the fishing wire, weave it around the center piece and tie it on the end at the center.
And you’re done!
