At a loss what to do with your odd beads or maybe some beads you aren't very fond of? Jazz up your garden or your window with these two decor tips from the folks over on Garden Therapy. The basic idea is similar but little bells have to be added at the bottom if you want it to be a garden chime. The first tutorial for the garden chime is by Rachel Beyer. You can either hang it from a tree branch or on a tall garden stake.
The second suncatcher tutorial by Debbie Wolfe is more of a window mobile - like a beaded curtain. It can be hung outside or inside. Notice that the beads are spaced out with crimp beads which gives the mobile a more airy look. Consider choosing transparent beads which will look very pretty with the light coming through!
