Help Me Decide, Wouldya!? (Photo)

Bought a bunch of old gold colored tarnished flatware. Had decided to take an old flywheel from a tractor (or very old car!) and turn it into a windchime. Even if the sound wasn't very melodic, thought it would be a neat idea. As I was laying it out to see how it was gonna look, Twinkie (my DH) and I both thought that it looked pretty cool just as it was. What about it? Would you mount it on something and use it as is, or would you make a windchime?

I like the look of it as it is, i would put it on a wall, would make an interest topic of conversation.

I like it like that (know a welder?), but also like the idea of a windchime (although the flywheel seems a bit large for that).

Stealing your neat project! hehe...

Lydia, if I go with the idea of a windchime we're gonna drill small holes in the handles of the silverware and tie them with clear fishing type line in the holes of the flywheel. It's mostly for the "look" rather than the sound, I'm sure! LOL

Steal my idea - imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! LOL

How about a photo holder? You could mount the wheel to the wall, bend the spoons and forks at the mouth end so you can slide a photo in, attach the utensils by the hand part to the wheel. You might be able to use liquid nails to adhere them to the wheel, not sure but liquid nails is amazing stuff. OOOOHHh you could even paint the wheel and the utensils to match your decor! Good Luck and let us see the finished result!

It doesn't have to "be" anything. It looks so good as it is...a beautiful piece of art.
