I love the tranquil melodies of my homemade bamboo wind chime while doing a little
gardening in the backyard. I could garden all afternoon, enjoying its sweet sound.
Interestingly, the music a wind chimemakes as the wind blows is believed to give
out positive energy that can bring in good health, wealth, and prosperity.
You can make wind chimes at home without spending a lot of money. Wind chimes can
be made using cheap materials such as bamboo, coconut husks, wooden twigs, plastic
cutlery, and bottle caps. Unwanted CDs, metal tubes, shells or even natural stones
are also great stuff to use. Combine and arrange them well, you will get various
interesting shapes, styles as well as designs.
Today’s DIY craft tutorial is super easy, and you can even get your kids to make
the seashell wind chime together.
You will need these materials:
1 plastic can lid,
paper punch or sharp pencil
liquid white glue
Make sure the yarn you use is of good durable quality or else you may end up with
brittle string connections that can destroy or shatter your homemade seashell wind
You can either grab some seashells from a craft store or pick them from the seashore.
Don’t worry too much about the size but smaller seashells are better aesthetically.
Instructions to Make Homemade Wind Chime
Take a piece of yarn and cut it to the length you want. Cut at least 6 long threads
of the yarn. After you’ve done that, take the seashells and glue it to the yarn.
Depending on the length of your yarn, glue 4 to 5 shells to it in the same direction.
Leave it overnight to set.
Make 6 holes, equally spaced on the top of the plastic can lid with a paper punch
or sharp pencil.
Now, hold the lid with the rim facing up and fix the yarn with the seashells in it.
Tie the knot and your homemade wind chime is ready to be hung.
Hang your homemade wind chime in the patio to create a sense of peace and relaxation,
and enjoy nature’s sweet serenade while you read your morning papers!
