Turn Wind Chimes Into Ornaments

This is a tip for wind chimes that can't endure wind and don't have too much chime. Such as ones that are constructed of plastic, nylon string, and thin aluminum tubes. The tubes are usually decorative and have 2 holes on one end. Find a 'piece' such as a bead, an old jewelry stone or an ornamental piece of that broken chime. The piece should have a thread space. Measure your string, thread, twine, cord, etc., as you would like your ornament (tube and piece) to hang. I triple mine.

  1. Thread piece.
  2. Knot to your preference.
  3. Thread the 2 ends of string through the 2 tube holes.
  4. Pull both ends of string through the inside of tube
  5. Top off your ornament as you like. I use a paper clip sprayed with a cheap adhesive and dipped in glitter.

  6. Finish off by securing string with a dab of hot glue.
