Juice Lid Wind Chimes
Glue two ice cream sticks together at their centers to form an X. Tie a piece of yarn at the X to help hold the sticks together and to make a loop for hanging.
Wash and dry sixteen frozen juice lids. Cut four 1 foot pieces of yarn and a fifth piece 1 1/2 feet long.
- Two ice cream sticks
- Sixteen frozen juice lids
Using three lids, glue on of the lids to the end of a piece of yarn, another one almost at the center, and the last one near the top, leaving about 3 inches of yarn. Repeat this three more times. Tie each piece of yarn to an end of one of the sticks.
Glue the remaining four lids onto the 1 1/2 foot length of yarn, leaving about 2 1/2 inches to be tied to the center of the sticks.
