Making Wind Chimes from Shells, Beach Glass & Driftwood
Making wind chimes with shells, beach glass and driftwood to create a welcoming environment around doorways!
"According to feng shui, one way to invite positive energy into our homes is by creating a welcoming environment around doorways," says Diane from Home Sweet Home who created four gorgeous wind chimes with shells, beach glass and driftwood that she collected along the shore.
This shell wind chime is made with shell shards that hang from a piece of driftwood. Diane Drilled Tiny Holes in the Shells and the Driftwood and attached them with bead thread, adding a small bead at each end to secure the knots.
Another Shell Windchime she made is accessorized with colored beads and buttons. Diane hopes that the soft clinking sound will attract hummingbirds.
And how gorgeous is this luminous Seaglass Wind Chime out on the patio! You can learn how to drill holes in seaglass here. Or if you don't want to deal with the drill, Wire Wrap the Seaglass!
And lastly, a Driftwood Wind Chime, woven together with jute to avoid drilling holes into the wood. For spacing, Diane threaded the jute strands through small hex nuts between each wood piece. All these wind chimes are gorgeous and welcoming!
