I recently found this very large lot of macrame hoops all taped together and selling for two dollars. There are a couple bamboo, which could be handbag handles as well. There are a few metal and a few plastic. But they all have the same destination in mind.

I have wanted to make some wind chimes for awhile now. I made one for my sister-in-law and her girlfriend for Christmas, but it wasn't really what I wanted it to look like. I have a better chance of making it right this time! These hoops are going to be the tops. They are wide enough and sturdy enough to hold up to a bunch of glass hanging from them.

I hope to have a finished picture for you within the month.

And I just like cheese graters. I really do.

Linking up here this week!


  1. ooohh i love these for crafts! cant wait to see ur wind chimes :)

  2. Great finds, Trudy! I can't wait to see the finished product.

  3. Oh my, macrame takes me back to my hippie days.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your nice comment. I replied to the email notification before realizing your email address isn't linked to your profile. Oops, I do that all the time.

    Anyway, I just had to let you know that Heirloom White is my fave white, too. Some people have it color matched for paint in a can, and your comment reminded me to do that this weekend for some furniture I want to paint. Thanks!! Have a great weekend!
