Weave Wind Chime

This is a great way to re-purpose broken wind chimes by saving the chime pieces to create your own! 



Materials needed

  • Willow or vine
  • Twine
  • Beads and other decorations for the chime strands
  • Metal or bamboo chime pieces
  • Seed pods or other decorations that you might like to glue onto the hoop
  • Glue gun or craft glue
  • Scissors
  • Leaves 

Method

  1. Weave your willow or vine into a hoop and allow to dry. 
  2. Tie your chime pieces to some twine and attach beads or other decorations along the strands. When you're ready, tie them onto the bottom of your hoop.
  3. Cut another strand of twine and tie one end onto your hoop, at the back, weave this through parts of your hoop frame, in a zigzag, then tie off the other end to the back of the hoop. 
  4. Tie a look on the top so you can hand your windchime.
  5. Go for a walk and gather some leaves. Weave these through the center of your hoop to decorate. 
  6. Glue on any additional decorations you'd like to add to the hoop, such as seed pods.

You can re-weave and change up the nature in your wind chime if desired.
