Mini Windchime



Here is a little update on last night's project. I'm making a "capiz shell" windchime. I was inspired by this post at Completely Coastal.

I used beige sewing thread for two of the strands. Then I remembered that I had some invisible thread.

It really IS invisible! Just tying a knot with it is a challenge! The "shells" are made of parchment paper, painted lightly on both sides with Folk Art metallic pearl white paint. I used my hole punch to make the little shells.

I'll keep working on this tonight. Gotta go to work now.

Hope you have fun making something today!
