Deciding on 2 different types just for fun. One out of bottles and one out of zinc strips left from the roofing. For the bottle chain we bought a bottle cutter and I made copper chains from recycled copper grounding wire.
|Ginger beer bottles and copper chain.
|simple leaf shape
|marked on the zinc strip
Adding a hole at the top of the leaf and pinching it just a bit. Then cut copper wire to slip through the hole and use as a hanger on the copper chain.
|a little curl to hold it in place
|slip through the hole
Make the chain links by wrapping the wire around a broom handle many times. Then cut out the individual chains to link together.
|Lots of wrapping
|clip them into jump rings
|link them together to make a chain.
|Only another 8 feet to go.
They are going to look so great on the corners of the house when we get the gutters back on.
