SYTYC - Dollar Store Week

I was extremely nervous about this weeks theme. It seems like such a stretch to create something that looks expensive using only materials found at the dollar store! My goal was to find things that most people might have laying around the house and use them in a fun and exciting way. What I came up with was this adorable sun-catcher wind-chime!

 My supplies from the dollar store were spoons, forks, glass beads, ribbon, metal planter riser, and silver wire. Who would have thought I could make something so cool with stuff at the dollar store! I wish I could record the noise it makes when the wind blows - different from a traditional wind-chime, but a calming clinking noise that I LOVE but my favorite part is when the sun hits it and reflects funky colors off of the different glass beads attached. 

You could definitely use the same technique on the forks and serving pieces for a funky addition to any dinner party or place setting :)
