My sister in law told me to put a wind chime next to my garden to scare animals away..I didnt have one so I looked around the house and found some items I already had at home that I didnt use. A floral tin container, some forks, spoons, an old round car part nut, some fishing line. I hung it from my headless scarecrow for now. I am going to hang it from something else and put flowers inside the container. It is a bit hillbilly but hey it chimes so at least it actually works. I love to recycle.
