Wind chimes can add a relaxing and beautiful touch to your outdoor area. Even though you can buy wind chimes at any garden or home store, you can also make your own using objects that may ordinarily be thrown into the recycling bin. For example, you can make a handmade wind chime out of colored glass bottles. Once finished, you can hang up the chimes in your garden to add a lovely ambiance.
Things You'll Need
- 6 glass bottles
- 8-inch wooden craft ring
Cut six pieces of twine, each measuring 8 inches long.
Tie the end of each piece of twine tightly around the mouth of a glass bottle.
Tie the other end of each piece of twine around an 8-inch wooden craft ring. Space each piece of twine about 1 1/2 inches apart.
Cut three more pieces of twine, each measuring 6 inches long.
Place the three pieces of twine together, then tie the ends together on one side.
Tie the other ends of all three pieces of twine onto the top of the wooden ring. Space the twine about 2 1/2 inches apart. These pieces of twine will enable you to hang up the glass bottle wind chimes.
