While out biking around the campgrounds at Keuka State Park, we found this little wonder hanging.
It's a wind chime. Really, that's what the proud owners said, and it does make a lovely sound. You can see it blowing in the wind a bit in the photo below. It is my all time favorite bit of campsite decor. I must have a little redneck blood somewhere back there.
I know you want one. Come on, admit it. I'd make one, but the boys have all been drinking their beer from bottles lately. My diet ginger ale cans just don't seem right for this kind of project. So here's a close-up and tutorial for those who need a beauty like this hanging in their yard or campsite.
You tie the first can on the string with a knot using the ring of the flip top, slide the others on the string through their rings, and tie the last one on with a knot. Be sure to use a long piece of string because you know you're gonna to want to continue to add to it. If you look at the first photo above you can see that the string is dragging on the ground. These people have definite plans for future partying.
