Driftwood Wind Chime

Driftwood Wind Chime

Hey guys!  Today I am sharing this do-it-yourself Driftwood Wind Chime.  We have been alternating between camping and swimming in the pool all month long.  So I thought we would pause for a moment to add a few embellishments to our outdoor space.  I just love how gorgeous this project turned out!  And it is super easy to create….

Here’s what you need.  Most supplies can be found at Michaels or along the shore of your local lake or beach.  I was fortunate enough to happen upon a vendor at Creative Chaos (the largest craft fair in Western Canada) who sells all of these wind chime bits so that you can go home and create your own.  All I needed to scrounge up from my stash were some beads and twine.


five pieces of driftwood (with holes drilled through the center)

5 large ceramic beads

12-16 small glass or plastic beads

1 large pendant

Step 1 – lay out your design.  Play with the placement of your beads and driftwood.

Step 2 – thread the twine through the beads and driftwood.  Tie with secure knots at either end.

Once hung you have a lovely new addition to your decor!  Our boys actually absconded with this and hung it in their new tree fort.  So very cute!  My favorite of the beads is the one that says “roadtrip” which is one of our favorite activities to do as a family in the summer months.

Have you created a driftwood wind chime?  Please share – I would love to see it!
