How to Create a Repurposed Steamer Wind Chime
Wind chimes and flowers are two of my favorite things that I create out of the way, and this steam game, which is also a flower, was a lot of fun.
Here are my supplies for this wind chime. You will find a list at the end of this article.
Since both the steamer and the measuring spoons already have holes, this does not require a drilling project.
I used steamer before when I created some reused flowers a few years ago. You can see my recreated sieve / steamer flowers here or watch the video a little further down in this post.
I sprayed the steamer in a fun pink / purple and the jelly mold in a light pink.
With a pair of pliers I took apart the artificial pearl necklace to hang up the measuring spoons.
Then I attached the split rings to the spoons and the necklace pieces to the rings.
I spread the split rings as evenly as possible with the holes in the steamer.
Here you can see everything in the attachment.
I applied a thin layer of marine goop glue to the bottom of the glass plate before applying it in the middle of the steamer.
Be careful not to use too much glue. Less is definitely more.
I did the same thing with the jelly mold and then placed it in the middle of the glass plate.
Let the glue harden for at least 24 hours. If it is hot and humid, as it is right here, it may take longer for the glue to harden.
To hang my steamer wind chime, I used two pieces of another artificial pearl necklace attached to split rings and a large key ring at the top.
As with most of my wind chimes, I added a chandelier crystal on top to give it a little shine.
I’m always for a little bling.
I only looked at the distance between the carillons, but I think it got pretty good.
So here is my beautifully converted garden art flower steamer wind chime.
Don’t worry if the chime of the measuring spoon is facing forwards or backwards as it is constantly moving in the wind.
I just let them do their thing.
TIP: If you have a heat wave like we’re here, don’t hang it in the full sun. UV rays on days with temperatures such as the mid to high 1930s can decompose the adhesive.
