Begin by adding the beads to the galvanized watering can. Run lengths of wire through the holes as shown below. TIP: Bend the end of the wire slightly and use patience to run through the first hole and locate the second.
String various clear faceted beads onto the pieces of wire.
Wrap wire around itself using jewelry pliers to secure on the ends.
Repeat for four strands of beads from the watering can nozzle.
Start making the wind chimes by running a very long piece of twine through the handle of the small galvanized watering can.
Tie a knot in the twine (location depends on where terra cotta pot will sit when added to twine).
Add both ends through a wood bead. TIP: Wrap a piece of tape around the ends of the twine to make threading it through easier.
Place a terra cotta pot onto the twine by threading through the drainage hole in the bottom. Allow it to rest on the wood bead.
Tie another knot above the pot so that the clay pots will hang correctly when assembled. TIP: You can tie and untie these knots until you get the pots placed correctly.
Add another bead on top of this knot.
Continue in this method until all of your pots are strung together on the twine.
Tie twine into a loop at the top to complete your wind chimes.
