My Windchime

The porch on the new house needed something.  I couldn’t decide what.  I wanted something unique and fun, but not noisy like metal chimes.  Thanks to my boyfriend I think I now have the most unique idea out there.  He suggested deer antlers.  He had plenty of them, so we set to work.

First, he drilled holes in each antler.  The antlers were strung on wire.  Random bright coral and turquoise beads were added to the wires.  The wires were then tied to a metal ring we found a the hardware store.  The ring was then strung onto loops of wire to be hung.  The finishing touch was to put a dot of Gorilla glue on each wire knot to keep them in place through the wind and weather.  Here’s the finished product:

So what do you think?  I’m personally in love. 🙂
