You can Use Your Beach Glass to Make Sea Glass Wind Chimes
Step by Step Instructions to Making a pleasing and Eye Catching Wind Chime or Suncatcher.
Many have found that the right combination of melodic sounds produced by a wind chime go well with many environments.
Your sea glass as well as sea shells added to a wind chime makes it pleasing to the eyes as well as to the ears.
You might want to leave several strands of the chimes themselves next to each other so that they do bump together to produce that pleasing music in a light breeze.
If it is not the sound or tone of tubular or other wind chimes that you are looking for, you may decide to make a sun catcher or mobile instead.
Just adapt the above instructions for the sea glass wind chimes project to fit your sun catcher or sea glass mobile.
Our viewers have submitted examples of sea glass wind chimes ranging from easy to more difficult wind chimes.
Even a very simply-made wind chime of beach glass provides a conversation piece and a nice way to use your beach treasures.
