12 Great DIY Wind Chime Ideas
Want to make your own DIY wind chimes? Here are some tips:
- Go Shopping! If you don’t have old kitchen gadgets or extra silverware, go shopping at thrift stores, secondhand shops, and garage sales. You will be able to find things cheap and they don’t have to be in perfect shape.
- Spray paint it. Don’t like the colors, maybe they don’t match, or want to keep rust at bay? Spray paint the items to bring new life to your wind chime.
- Hang it somewhere sturdy. When a storm comes through, make sure to have your wind chime hung somewhere sturdy or be ready to take it down.
