Garden twirlers, also known as wind spinners, garden spinners or kinetic spinners, spin when wind hits them. They run the gamut from inexpensive twists of plastic to elaborate metal shapes within shapes that spin at various speeds in the breeze. All twirlers need to be able to move freely and, ideally, have a means to spin without straining or over-twisting any attached string or line. You can hang them from a plant hook, shepherd's hook or a tree branch.
Open the fishing swivel by squeezing the looped end, similar to opening a safety pin.
Slide the open end of the swivel through the top hanging hole in the twirler or the ring attached to it, if there is one. Close the swivel.
Cut a piece of fishing line at least 5 inches longer than the desired hanging length with a pair of scissors. Use 5-pound test, UV protected fishing line.
Tie one end of the string to the small loop end of the fishing swivel. Tie the other end to a hook, such as a ceiling hook on a porch designed for hanging plants, or to a shepherd's hook in the garden.
