SEA GLASS WIND CHIME TUTORIAL

I wanted to do a tutorial on the seaglass wind chime I just made to hang in my coastal dining room. It is a little time consuming, but so pretty when it is done, I think it is worth the time. I first saw this hereCrafts Unleashed. Thanks for the great tutorial!

 

SEA GLASS WIND CHIME

Here are the supplies I used:

2 bags of blue/white seaglass vase fillers bought at Michaels $2.99
8″ embroidery hoop & 3″ embroidery hoop
Ribbon color of your choice to wrap around hoops & for hanging
Crochet string
Gorilla Glue Gel

First wrap the hoop with the ribbon. I just used glue at the beginning & end.  Then attach the 3″ hoop to the 8″ hoop by using string. I used 6 pieces to attach these together. Then cut 6 pieces of string around 14″ long & 3 pieces of string around  12″ long. Tie each piece of sea glass in a knot to the strings. I just used a dot of gorilla glue to make sure it was secure. Do this on all 9 pieces of string. Then tie the 6 shorter pieces around the outside hoop & the 3 longer pieces around the inside hoop. Then it is up to you how you want to hang it. I just used 4 pieces of string tied together, but you can also use ribbon or tulle as shown in the below link. Whatever you like best. I’d love to see pictures if you do make one! Have a good day.

 

 

 

 
 
 
 

 

 

It is difficult to get a good picture, but when the light hits the glass, it really looks so beautiful. Again, I have to point out the view. Makes me smile everytime I see it, plus the birds-did I mention the birds 🙂

DIY SEAGLASS WIND CHIME

Here is a butterfly mobile I made a few weeks ago. It is made basically the same way but I used fishing wire:
