Unique Wind Chimes are a pleasant addition to any home or garden. When they are moved by gentle wind, they produce pleasant ringing noises that bring a sense of harmony to your garden.
Wind chimes are valuable to any outdoor living area because they allow us to enjoy our gardens with a sense other than sight. We hear the rustle of the leaves, along with the gentle, tingling sound of wind chimes cascading in the breeze.
Aside from their soothing and relaxing sound, wind chimes have been used for many reasons. Some cultures believe they ward off evil, others use them as a charm to bring good fortune. They can also be helpful in scaring pesky unwanted birds from your garden, if placed near by. Wind chimes also have a way of reminding us of weather changes as well as changing of the seasons.
But as valuable as these garden ornaments can be, they do not have to be expensive. You can even make your own unique wind chimes, with a little creative flair! Wind chimes can be made of all sorts of materials, each type having their own unique sound.
Choose metal for a light, tinkling melody, ceramic pieces for subtle bell-like tones, glass for a soft clinking tune or bamboo for a hypnotic, earthy rhythm. You can mix and match materials to produce a new sound unique to your creation. Customize the look of the wind chime by assembling it from found objects that exude funky, homegrown charm, or beads to add color and sparkle.
Wind chimes can be as different as your personality and you need not spend a fortune to create a one-of-a-kind wind art that is both eye-catching and musically satisfying.
Wind chimes are simple and fun to make and they offer the added feature of personalization and sentimentality. All it takes is a little bit of creativity and imagination.
