1 butter knife
one metal ring
clear nylon thread or fishing line
needle nose pliers
drill with bit for stainless steel (if that's what you're using)
First, drill a small hole in the handles of the fork and spoons and in
the end of the SPREADING part of the butter knife..not the handle. Take
the fork and bend the two inner tines outward (with the needle nose
pliers)...one facing the front and one facing the back.
Bend and turn
the two outter tines sideways, so all four tines point out in each of
the four directions.
Next, with the pliers again, bend just the tips of
the tines up and over to form a little circle on the top of each tine.
Take a piece of nylon thread (any length you want your windchime to be)
and tie it through the hole in the knife.
Tie the other end of the
thread to the base of the two middle tines of the fork, so that the
knife hangs directly under the fork.
Next, tie matching lengths of
thread through the holes in the spoons and tie each of the ends through
the little circles you formed on each of the tines of the fork.
you should have the knife hanging in the center of the fork and one
spoon off of each of the tines.
Tie a piece of thread to the hole in the
handle of the fork, and attach a metal ring to the other end to hang it.
There you go...it is really so simple...drilling is easy, and so is
putting it together...you should be able to make up a bunch of them in
no time flat.
