Welcome to the Very 1st Monday Makeover!
I’m looking forward to more beautiful things ahead, aren’t you?

Okay, for my first makeover project I gave new life to an old wind chime that I bought years ago. I didn’t even know we still had it until a few weeks ago when Avery found it in the bushes. Not sure how it got into the bushes, in fact, I’m not even really sure what my daughter was doing in the bushes, but… whatever. Anyway, she pulled this poor mangled mess out from the bushes and immediately saw the beauty that was lurking under the rust, bent chimes, and fraying thread.
That’s my girl – she’s just like her mama!
She desperately tried fixing it up with a little bit of wire. As you will see from the picture below, it didn’t go over all that well… bless her heart. So, I figured since she had become so attached to it, I might as well “make it over” into something she can cherish forever. I took the entire thing apart and cleaned the pieces I was going to reuse (not many). Then, I grabbed my numerous beading boxes and got to work. I used hundreds of tiny seed beads to create this new hanging beauty.
Let’s have a look at the before & after pics, shall we?
