Key Wind Chimes
Do you have a lot of old keys around your house and you don’t know what to do with them? If so, you can make your own key wind chimes. All you need are keys, paint, string, and a stick. First, you want to paint the stick and then the keys.
Make sure you let each side dry before you paint the other side. Then, you want to cut the string and tie each string around the hole of a key. Tie the other side of the string on the stick and then cut another string so you can hang up the chime.
