How to make a Beach Inspired Windchime

A Beach Inspired Windchime for those us that LOVE the beach.

If you’re one of the lucky ones that live on the ocean or have a Beach House.

Here is a simple project to make that you can hang on the back porch.

Or if you don’t live on the beach or have a beach house.

The Windchime is a fun reminder of trips to the ocean,

and a great way to use some of those shells you collected.

Gather Your Supplies…

The Caddy Storage Tray* is so handy to use. It’s perfect for sorting the various sizes of wood beads. And it fits into the large container of the Deflecto Stackable Caddy Organizer*.  I used the Deflecto Interlocking Marker Organizer* in the caddy to hold my paintbrushes.  I put all my supplies in the caddy and took it onto the deck, where I worked on the wind chime under my umbrella on a beautiful Summer day.  (and wished I was on the beach)

Faux Driftwood…

Because I didn’t have an actual driftwood stick from the beach.  I used a stick found in the yard and broke it down to size.

  • Scrape the bark off the stick.  (I used an old table knife.)
  • Paint the stick with white acrylic paint and a couple of stripes of pale blue and aqua.
  • Give the stick a light sanding with fine-grit sandpaper to rough it up and make it look more natural.

  • Cut five pieces of twine approximately 24″ long.
  • Tie a knot on one end of the twine.
  • Wrap a small piece of blue removable painters tape on the other end of the twine to keep the twine from fraying.
  • String Wood Beads onto the twine.

  • Tie beaded twine to the painted stick.
  • On the center of the stick, I glued a medium-sized Starfish purchased at a Beach Gift Shop.
  • Add a couple of beads to a piece of twine. Tie twine to each end of the stick to use as a hanger.
  • Stick the loose ends of the twine through the beads to hide.
