There is something about the gentle tinkling sound of a wind chime dancing in a summer breeze that brings instant peace--which is why these DIY wind chimes are so therapeutic. From Free People blogger Brigette, this craft will also be calming as you piece together the natural looking musical instrument.
Using bamboo, sticks, twine and other personal embellishments like feathers, you can make your very own DIY wind chimes and make your home a little more zen. The majority of the materials you need will likely already be in your possession, while bamboo can be found at a craft store or online. You will also need some tools (a hot glue gun, handsaw and drill with small bit) that you might have to borrow from a neighbor.
