DIY Seashell Wind Chime // Goodbye summer

I know this is probably not the best time to do this kind of project since summer is almost gone, but last week I went to the beach and there were so many of these shiny shells, I though to make a wind chime. Maybe I should call this a goodbye summer project, since the weather is not so good anymore.

You will need:
Twine / Branches / Scissors / Hot glue gun / Shells

This kind of shell brakes easily, and I didn't have an appropriate tool to make the hole, that's why I chose to glue the shells instead.
First you will need to knot a piece on twine to the branch, leave the length as long as you want it to be, mine was about 7cm.

The shells are light weight and you don't want it to drip so use a small amount of glue to attach the shell.

Keep adding rows of shells, you can make as many rows as you want depending on the size of your branch.

To finish of just tie another piece of twine on both ends of the branch.

I hope you enjoyed this goodbye summer project,
Talk to you soon,


  1. Really nice DIY, great idea. :)

  2. Thanks for the fun idea. My family and I recently made a trip to the Oregon Coast and while we were there we all collected a bunch of seashells. I think making these wind chimes would be a really fun craft for my children.

  3. This is so pretty! I feel an excuse to go to the beach coming on :) haha as if I needed one!
