Wind chimes are beautiful to watch and hear, but the strings may become tangled, bent and cut with use. Instead of throwing away these decorative wind chimes, save them by restringing them with new nylon strings. Once you restring the wind chimes, hang them back up and enjoy the pleasant sounds once again as the wind hits the chimes outside your home.
