The rusty tin can was litter in the high desert of california.

I rescued it along with many others. Its my way of cleaning and recycling.

Thar's a really creative way to recycle. I love the rusty vintage look. I wonder if there's a way to make the chimes look rusty too? Maybe it would make the tones icky though.

Just go to your local hardware store and have a look around. You can buy copper tubing and pipe pretty cheaply. It's not hard to cut either. One of the employees might even be able to point out possible materials to you if you tell him/her what you want to make. I love hardware stores. Almost nothing I buy is ever used for its intended purpose, it's all used for crafts.
