DIY Wind Chime

Save some money by making your own colourful wind chime from bottle caps 🙂

DIY Wind Chime

Materials:

  • 40-50 pcs of bottle caps
  • metal wire
  • pliers with wire cutter
  • hammer and a punch
  • center piece (Anything you think you could use to hang the chains of caps – it could be a vegetable steamer, old CD’s, or a small branch of a tree)
  • Fishing Wire

Steps:

DIY Wind Chime Step 1

Cut metal wires about 2-1/2 inces long.

DIY Wind Chime Step 2

Puncture the bottle caps twice with the hammer and punch. Use a punch that would create holes with a size that is just enough for the wire to go through.

DIY Wind Chime Step 3

Insert metal wire on the whole. Wrap the end around itself using pliers.

DIY Wind Chime Step 4

Insert the other end on another cap and secure it as well.

DIY Wind Chime Step 5

Continue linking caps together until you get a chain of your desired length.

DIY Wind Chime Step 6

Attach the chains you have made to the centerpiece using the metal wires, still.

DIY Wind Chime Step 7

To hang your wind chime, use the fishing wire, weave it around the center piece and tie it on the end at the center.

And you’re done!
