Chimes, whirligigs, windsocks, banners, and windvanes--these 35 toys seem practically alive with sound and movement. Some can even be tuned! Made from fabric, metal, wood, glass, or clay, many are perfect for the beginning crafter. Spin a Garden of Tulips or Hummingbird Toy. Nothing's simpler than a Circle of Beads Wind Chime: just select beautiful beads, arrange them on lengths of cord, and add a few wind-chime tubes to make sweet music. Others feature falling flowers or a rainbow made of polymer clay. Mobiles--with winter trees or bluebirds--would cheer up any room or porch. Those who like to sew will enjoy stitching the eye-catching Dragonfly Windsock. If painting's a passion, pick up the brushes and turn a swatch of ordinary canvas into a series of one-for-every-season Flower Garden Banners. And with patterns, color pictures, and technical tips, they're really a breeze to create! 128 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 10. NEW IN PAPERBACK
