Making Wind Chimes

Tips and ideas for making your own wind chimes.

Making Wind Chimes

I use all sizes of natural wreaths as wind chimes. Going to a thrift store or yard sale, I look for the wreaths and gold dinner ware, or any unusual utensil. I drill holes in the dinner ware and using fishing line, tie them on the wreaths. The wreaths are level, which sometimes I use leather strands to make a "hanger" or I keep using the fishing line.


There are so many ways to make wind chimes. I use colorful beads, odd chime tubes, one inch tiles that are glued to a one inch piece of wood. Dig through your jewelry box. Those old pearl earrings could possibly be a piece to a wind chime.

Silverware Wind Chimes

Use old silver silverware for the best "sounds", and usually they are more ornamental than what you find in a dollar store or such.

My husband had a ton of old skeleton keys from his family home that I made a gorgeous and unique windchime with.

At the risk of sounding like an old curmudgeon, let me remind all the "wind chime people" out there that some of your neighbors do not enjoy all that chaotic and constant noise. The sound of silence is what we enjoy most.
