A Basic Wind Chime Can Be So Relaxing in a Gentle Breeze

You can hang this basic wind charm outside or near your door or window. Let a gentle breeze make it tinkle and sway and relax you.

A great way to show off treasures and make a really personal decoration for your room or home. Have fun and make a wind charm that is strange and unusual.

Many times, arts and crafts that are strange and unusual are more interesting. So let yourself go and don't be afraid to make something that is very personal.


Things we need for our basic wind chime

  • String
  • A collection of shells, bells, pebbles and metal objects, metal things with holes
  • Strong twig or stick
  • Scissors
Basic Wind Chime Tutorial for Kids

How To Make Homemade Wind Chime

Step One

We can start by arranging our collection of metal objects out on our table. We are going to have several objects on each piece of string. So lay out your objects in a nice design.

It's best to use objects that have places to tie on to, like holes.

Start by tying a piece of string to one of your objects. Make sure you tie a firm knot and cut off any excess string.

Add Metal Embellishments To The Wind Chime

Step Two

Now leave a little piece of string and tie on the next object. Tie it tightly and cut off any excess again. Attach another new piece of string to the second object.

Hang Metal Trinkets Close Together For Our Chime

Step Four

Next, carry on tying your interesting objects together with a small length of string between. Keep laying them back out to see if your designs look good.

It's nice if our basic wind chime looks jumbled and more homemade and random. Our objects need to be near each other when we hang the string. So if all your objects are not in a line, simply cut the string and add new pieces of string that are either longer or shorter.

You can add as many objects as you like to each string. It's your basic wind chime, you make it the way you want to.

Once one length of string and objects is completed, we need to make four or five more strings.

Finish Making Our Handmade Wind Chime

Step Four

Finally to finish our basic wind chime, all we need to do is assemble it. Tie the strings to the twig or stick. Space them out evenly, but make sure to keep them close together.

We want a gently breeze to be able to blow the objects into each other to make a pleasing tinkling sound.

If your twig is either too big or too small. Just go find a new twig.

Finally finish tying all your dangly strings to your basic wind chime. Then ask an adult to help you hang it somewhere where the breeze can blow it.

Now have a nice peaceful afternoon, relaxing after a hard day crafting.
