How to Make a Wind Chime Using Recycled Wine Bottles


This is the perfect time of year to spend some time outside. If you enjoy your garden and outdoor spaces, try making some fun wind chimes with your old wine bottles.

Wine bottles are very sturdy, they will last a long time in the elements. The echo of sunlight through the glass is beautiful. You can use a single color of wine bottle in your chimes or mix it up with blue, clear or green. Add beads and some wire or colorful string to dress them up a bit.

Try your hand at creating your own garden art and enjoy the music. This video tutorial explains how to make these beautiful wind chimes.
