"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Rustic Recycled Keys Windchime

Turn your space into a rustic escape with only a few easy-to-find supplies. Primitive country crafts take you back to a different time and place, and this Rustic Recycled Keys Windchime certainly fits that bill. Gather up old keys and a stick from outside to get started. Use twine to bring the piece to life - it's that easy. Hang your windchime inside or out - it looks great everywhere.


 

Materials:

  • Stick
  • 6 keys (or as many as you want)
  • Paint
  • Foam brush
  • Scissors
  • Twine

Instructions:

  1. First you need to go outside in your backyard or local park, and find the stick you would like to use for your project. Then come in and paint it your favorite color.
     
  2. Gather some keys that you no longer use. Antique keys also look great!
     
  3. Cut pieces of twine to your desired length and tie one end to the stick and the other end to a key, you will do this for each key.
     
  4. Hang it up and you have a phenomenal DIY key windchime!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I agree with Princess, a little paint would add a cool splash of color though I do appreciate the simplicity of the version shown here.

You know what I would choose to do as well? I would actually paint the keys. I would paint the stick an opaque white and each of the keys I'd do a mint green, aqua, ocean blue, sea green, turquoise. I would use twine to hang, but add random glass beads tied in a knot along the length of the twine. Now we're talking! so pretty!

Simple idea, relatively simple to make, and totally delightful when finished - brilliant idea and I would bet that I am not the only one wondering why I did not think of it first. lol
