How To Make A Sea Glass Wind Chime

Over the summer we went to the coast for a week. One of our favourite past times (especially for YC and myself) was to collect sea glass. We ended up with quite a bit that we took home. Once home we decided it would be quite cool to turn them into a sea glass wind chime.   It would go really nicely near the mud kitchen we have out in the garden.

Make sure you follow my crafts for older kids board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own sea glass wind chime you will need:

  • Sea glass
  • Twine
  • A long stick (or 2)
  • Gorilla glue (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Wire
  • Pliers

I will apologise for the complete lack of photos.

Start by wrapping each piece of sea glass in some wire. It almost wants to resemble something you might get on as a pendant. You will need to create a loop at the top for it to hang up with.

You will need to decide whether you want them to hang from just one stick in a row, or from two crossed over like a child’s mobile. YC decided that it should be like a mobile.

If you choose to make it like a mobile, you will need to securely tie the two sticks together where they cross over.

Decide how many piece of sea glass you want to hang from each of the 4 parts. Ours worked out as 5 from each arm and one in the middle. Use the twine to hang each piece.  To secure them to the sticks I used a clove hitch knot which both YC and I have learnt to do at Scouts.  When they were all in place, I used a little of gorilla glue on each knot to stop them coming undone. Leave the gorilla glue to dry before handling the wind chime further or you will end up with glue on your hands. If you do end up with gorilla glue on your fingertips, I found that nail polish remover helped to get rid of it.

The trickiest part is actually getting it to hang straight. I hung it from the rail in my cupboard, then used 4 bits of twine, one attached to the end of each arm, to balance it out.  If you use one long stick, then you will only need one long piece of twine that is attached to each end of the stick.

Finally find the perfect place to hang up your sea glass wind chime.
