Stained Glass Keychimes

Categories: Crafty's Projects and Whimsy.


I’ve been making garden whimsy with old cd’s for a long time.  One o the first things I made was some key chimes.

Unfortunately the old cds and the weather aren’t good companions and the shine of the cd starts to wear away.  The keys get all twirled together and after awhile it gets hard to untangle the fishing line.  So it was time to repair and upcycle the key chimes once again.

The old key chime was made of 2 cds glued together, keys and fishing line.  This time I used one of the stained glass cds that I recently made.  Check here to see how I made them using an old cd and some stained glass paint.

The first thing was to drill some holes in the stained glass cd.  I waited till after it was painted to drill the holes, else they would of been covered over with paint.  There is one hole at the top for hanging and 7 at the bottom to fastening the old keys on.  Fishing line is used for hanging and fastening on the keys.
