Windchime - Hippo
This windchime is cut from a wine bottle and measures 18" to 25" long by 3 to 4" wide. We chose a hippo for the design (Becca loves them). It is hung with heavy test fishing line so it can last a long time in or outside.
I tend to leave mine out most of the year. The rule of thumb I follow is if the patio umbrella or outside anything have to taken down due to poor weather, so should the wind chime.
I left mine out during a snow storm one year. I think it would have alright until the flag blew off and hit it to the ground. Bummer.
