chimes and catchers
To make both it's really the same idea/ way to make them
cd's 2-5 for chimes 2-8 for catchers
small drill bit
metal pipe your choice of metal I like copper about 6" in lenght each ( for chimes)
decorations ( optional)
Glue 2 cd's together shiny side out
drill small holes around center to suspend chimes from about 3 still on the shiny part. another 3 on the clear part (optional)
around the outer edge drill 2 holes for each pipe ( ie: 6 pipes 12 holes)
drill holes in the tops of your pipe to feed your fishing line
Take 1 long lenght of line and 'sew' through the holes to the pipes to the matching holes in the outer edge of the cd's. Remember to have your pipes hanging at different legnths.
with the inner circle ( clear part) you cut designs in your remaining cd's ( suns, moons, rainbows, fish whatever you like)
take more line and hang these at various lenghts from the center.
the 3 left over holes is what you will 'sew' more line through to be able to hang it. Or if you are cofident with your knot tying do each hole seperate with a knot on the underside.
You can decorate the top with flowers, small ornaments what ever you feel will finish the project for you if needed.
you can do like a mobile suncatcher by replacing the pipes with more cut designs. Instead of sewing these you would do a line for each and top knot them. Again at staggering legnths.
Or cut a design drill one small hole at the top of it and hang in your windows.
The stained glass window paint gives a interesting effect to the cd's if you would like to add some color.
