DIY Japanese Inspired Wind Chimes

DIY Wind Chime with Monsterscircus

Hello dear Eclectic Trend readers and hello October from Mette and monsterscircus. Ready for fall, northern hemisphere-rs? I’ve always had a thing for wind chimes and with the windy days I had to give it a try.

Oooh that soothing and melodious sound – and the fact that you in most cases can make your DIY wind chimes using material you can find around your home, it’s a perfect fall DIY. Though I’ve been shopping my local flea and found the most gorgeous glass domes and glass inserts for votives – and I was to lucky to find crystal beads and trimming from my old chandelier.

So what do you say, shall we make some unique and fun wind chimes?

Let’s roll.

Thread beads on the crystals.

If you visit your local antique mall, you’ll find a lot of vintage odd and ends, keys, locks or even silverware that would make a great wind chime too. But I really like the transparent look combined with the wood, to me it’s a super fun downright creative and modern look.

In no time you can make your own little collection of different-size wind chimes – hang them at various heights from a pergola or the porch and listen as the glass and wood softly clink together with the wind.


Of course the wind chimes are meant for outside but I won’t be complaining looking at these each crisp fall mornings when having breakfast.

So let me hear, have you already made a homemade wind chime? If so be sure to link your project, we would love to see your creation.

Thank you so much for reading and I can’t wait to see you next month!

  1. I LOVE wind chimes! Since I have two balconies, I can always use more. I’m going to have to go on the prowl through my apartment to see what I can use. And they ARE great gifts since everyone likes wind chimes, don’t they?

    Another lovely project, Mette! Thank you.

    1. Oh Dani! You & I are talking the same language, I’m so convinced too that everyone would love to be gifted with such a precious. Lucky you, two balconies?

    Sorry to bug you but I was wondering what type of crystals you are using to tread the beads into, I’ve been trying to find them at my locate craft stores but they seem to not know what I’m talking about. xD Thank you :)
