DIY Clay Wind Charm


Bring some classic outdoor decor into your home with this lovely DIY clay wind charm from Francesca Stone of Design Sponge.

The current decor trend to hang everything — from plants to your fruit bowl — has had me reminiscing over the decorative aspects of chimes. Hanging disks or tubes to create a collection of shapes, rather than a sound, seems to fit perfectly with this trend. Instead of metals I used an air-dry clay to make these decorative indoor chimes as subtle in their sound as they are in their aesthetic!

Using air dry clay, these subdued chimes are cleverly formed using disposable plastic wine glasses as molds to ensure their uniform shape. Then, all you need is a suitable length of string and a place to hang them!
