Flowerpot Bells

I can't remember where I saw this idea but I liked it.  If it was your idea please comment so I can give credit where credit is due.
I wanted to add music to our outdoor play-space.  Using various sized flowerpots, twine and wooden beads I put these bells together in about an hour.   The children seem to enjoy them and I like the wind chime/cow bell sounds.  The black brackets were found locally at a discount store but I'm confident you could come up with your own creative idea about how to hang them in your yard.  Most of the trees in our yard are for climbing but I think these would look lovely hanging from the branches of a tree.
Happy crafting!  Oh and you could paint them with your kids; we are planning on painting ours the first week of school.  More photos coming soon.
