 I purchased a pile of sparkly baubles a couple weeks ago with the intention of making some sparkly things for my garden. Procrastination is such an evil thing but I enjoyed looking at the pile-O-sparkle on my craft table when the sun hit it.

 Anyway! I wanted to make a twirlywhirl/windcharm for my yard like I've seen around Pinterest but couldn't find proper wire. I thought of using a coat hanger, which is what I'll use next time but I found some wire at Michael's that would did the trick.
I made this!


I tried to get a picture of it in the sun but it didn't work but it's super sparkly and I made it to twirl.
I used the wire I found at Michael's
thin wire that I found in the floral department
all my sparkly beads that I found super cheap at Hobby Lobby
and some little bells I had in my stash.

I wrapped the beads around the wire.

It was a really easy project, didn't cost too much money (maybe $8 at the most) and it adds some pretties to my yard.
Hope you like!

This is so pretty.  I have some heavy aluminum wire that was given to me, I think I might try this.
