    Little know factoid: The sound of wind chimes is my favorite sound in the world. (The voices of my family don’t count.) It ranks just slightly above the sound of a fife and drum. Not that anyone cares or anything, but I love them, and now you have me wanting to actually make some of my own. I never have. I always buy them.

    GREAT ideas! Thanks for sharing, I am gonna get the supplies together to make one with the kids! Wonder which one they would like to make? So many choices! Have a blessed day dear Manuela, HUGS!

    I love the paint stick one! I think I’m gonna stain them dark then paint gold polka dots on them. Thanks for the inspiration as always Manuela! :)

    Thanks for the feature on my bottle cap wind chime! Got to admit the other ideas are pretty amazing, too… getting me inspired 😀 (the shells windchime would be a GREAT little summer project for those of us on the coast.)

    They all look so cute and I would enjoy having them in my garden for looks alone. I do love a musical windchime so, if I made these, I’d make sure that it would be unlikely for them to clank. That would probably be a challenge.

    Lots of cute ideas – Thanks for sharing. I have never made one, but do enjoy one I have had for years, hanging outside my back entrance. Many times I have been on the phone with someone and had them say they can hear the chimes. Makes me smile. :)
    Enjoy your evening.

    So cute! I will have to make the bottlecap one for my son who is in college! Guess what type of bottlecaps I will be using 😉 Thanks for these ideas! Vickie
