The hooligans and I LOVE making whirligigs, wind chimes and sun catchers to hang in our yard or to give as gifts. As is our style when we’re crafting, we like to keep things simple, using common, inexpensive materials found around the house or in our yard and garden.
Recently, I rounded up 21 of my favourite homemade outdoor ornaments for my friends over at Kids Activities Blog. Some come from the pages of my own blog, and others I found among the pages of my kid-blogging colleagues. All of these ornaments are relatively easy to make, and they’re sure to add bit of whimsy and charm to a deck or patio or a little corner of your yard.
Pop over to Kids Activities Blog to see the collection of all 21 ornaments and to find out how to make them.
