Dave loves wind chimes.
When I saw this awesome hanging planter in my favorite consignment store in SLC, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.
Getting my hands on chimes was more difficult than I thought it would be. I took these from a broken wind chime I finally found on sale at Lowe’s of all places.
I chose simple, elegant beads that would reflect the light & create the perfect…TING.
It turned out just like I envisioned.
From that spark of inspiration when I first glanced the planter to carefully selecting each bead to
painstakingly lovingly tying each knot this project was all about the person I was giving it to.
Dave loves that something as powerful as the wind can be reflected in the simple & beautiful sound of chimes. That is what I hoped to embrace, & he was in my thoughts throughout the entire process.
That is what made this gift so special…plus it held a pretty fern. 😉
Hopefully, he enjoyed it.
I wanted to share it with you after a new friend I met through the blog asked if there were any favorite gifts I had made. Now I’d like to hear about any special gifts you’ve made for someone. Tell us about them here in the comments or link to your own post.
I’m also looking for a little inspiration as the holidays approach…I’ve hit a bit of a lull.
