8 Great DIY Wind Chime Ideas

There’s nothing like listening to the soft tinkle of wind chimes on a breezy day! You can buy all kinds of wind chimes but it’s fun to make your own. Especially if you can upcycle  or repurpose material you already have to make one.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. What great ideas. I think I might make the one with the colander and silverware and hang it on our almost finished deck off from our dining room.

  4. 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! :)

  5. What great ideas! Thanks for sharing with us. Love the key one. So original.

  6. Each one is so cute!

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

  8. 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.

  9. Those are all great ideas, Manuela, I love the key one, very cute and colourful!

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  14. Each one of these is so cute! I love wind chimes and you have certainly given me some inspiring ideas!

  15. I love the jello mold, and the bottlecap chimes the most…how fun!

  16. All VERY cute ideas! When I was little we went on vacation to Fiji and we collected shels. My mom made a beautiful windchime with our “treasure”
