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?
Glass dome/ glass inserts for votives
A pair of scissors
Nylon thread/ fishing line
Crystal beads/ trimmings
Make sure your wood bead is larger than the opening of the glass dome.
Thread beads on the crystals.
Use a strong thread like nylon to fasten the crystals.
Thread the line through the top of the dome and that’s all!
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!
