Seashell Windchime

Shell wind chimeWhile we were camping over the weekend, I saw a beautiful seashell windchime at the camper next door. It was gorgeous! They used some beautiful shells hanging from clear fishing line, very similar to this one that I found over at Thrifty Fun.com. This site used a star at the top, with the shells dangling below, while the one I saw had a simple gold round ring.

These would be very easy to make and I definitely plan to make one when I get back from the beach! We’re heading there for 5 days in less than 3 weeks and I’m sure we’ll spend plenty of time looking for shells while we’re there.

We always seem to come home with tons of shells and we never know what to do with them… so now we’ll be giving these away!  Let’s see, I’m sure grandma will want one… and maybe even Aunt Kathy! lol!

We’ll post pictures of ours when we make them!

    Gloria and I are art teachers at an elementary school,we saw this idea and tried it before taking the idea to class. The kids paired up and each made a small windchime.The activity was quite enjoyed. Some of the other teachers made them as decorations for their classrooms.
