Unique Wind Chimes

Make Your Porch Sing

There's nothing quite like sitting on your porch listening to the sound of chimes on a slightly breezy day.

Even in the cooler months, it's enjoyable to hear the gentle sounds of unique wind chimes like the ones we found here.

Glass wind chimes are popular, but they aren't the only kind. Ceramic wind chimes, bamboo wind chimes, and even wood and metal can make your porch more festive. The soft sounds from wind chimes can be relaxing, don't you think? The one pictured here is bamboo.

How Wind Chimes Work

When the rods of the wind touch a suspended central clapper, sound is made. Or sometimes sound is made when the rods have contact with each other. Wind chimes chime more as the wind blows.

You can see the direction of the wind by watching the chimes. Wind chimes are often thought to bring good luck.

They make a wonderful and thoughtful gift. Or treat yourself to a new wind chime to hang on your porch or deck. My good friend, Donna, has a collection of wind chimes.


Making Wind Chimes from Silverware

If you were wondering how to build unique wind chimes, here is one idea:

You can make silverware wind chimes from miscellaneous utensils like spoons, knives and forks that you get at a thrift store. Start by carefully drilling holes in the handles. Make sure you know how to use power tools safely.

I've read that you can take a fork, heat it and then carefully pull back each of the tines with pliers in a north, south, east, west direction so that the tines of the fork are curled.

Then you can hang your utensils from the curled fork tines. Knives will make lower sounds than forks. Try hanging a spoon in the middle with forks all around it. Experiment to get pleasant sounds.
