Creating Your Own Wind Chime Using Various Materials

By Liza Jones

In the past, wind chimes were only played in the temples and official ceremonies in Ancient China. Later, eastern Asian neighbors used this instrument as part of Feng Shui.

As the wind passes through the chimes and creates beautiful tunes, it is believed to bring good health, fortune and prosperity.

Assembling a wind chime is not hard at all. Using materials that are commonly found such as metal, shells, glass, or even bamboo, one can create a wind chime with a little imagination and simple instructions. To enhance the look of a wind chime, other materials such as plastic, stones, or existing ceramics can be added to it. The wind chime can also be added to other decorative items such as a lantern.

Materials that are hollow inside make the best wind chimes. Hollow wood tubes or steel rods can be painted for more color as well as protecting it from the elements of nature. Sunlight and rain are not good for wood or steel and can damage these when exposed over long periods of time. Coating them with a protective material is one way of maximizing their longevity.

For glass materials, there is a variety that one can choose from. A few common glass materials are the bottle, crystal beads, and glassware.

The glasses are attached together with strings. A string that easily gets brittle will leave the glass wind chimes falling to the ground and breaking in the impact. With a breakable material, the choice of a string comes critical to the continuous service of the wind chimes.

Deep solid tones may be produced by wind chimes made of metal. By adjusting the position of certain components and the way the materials are stringed, the tune may alter. The kind metal also affects the tune.

To provide you with variety, you can check out some magazines or periodicals, then make a list of the necessary materials that fancy you. After the materials are acquired, you are now ready to create your own tune using the wind chimes.

In addition to crafting activities, this author also frequently contributes articles about the cash register tape and the electronic cash register.
