fun in the wind – chimes {roundup}

chimesContinuing on with the theme of wind for this week, I’m going to share a round up of wind chimes with you today.  From playful and simplistic ones the kiddos can make, to elegant and beautiful grownup DIY’s, I’m sure you’ll find something to inspire you!

So do you prefer a clinking chime like metal or glass?  Or a duller sound such as wood or bamboo?  Ooo.. maybe the tinkling sounds of thin shells…?

DIY-wind-chime-11Whether you leave them as is or paint them, bamboo chimes make a lovely sound.  I think using paint pens would be MUCH easier for this project then paint and a brush.  Via Apartment Therapy.

Mason-Jar-Upcycle-RepurposeOh the mason jar.  It even makes a pretty chime!  From Saved by Love Creations {left}.  Reuse a flower pot and add some copper pipe to make a unique chime.  Via Poppytalk {right}.
