So I began making some. The first two sets I made I started with cheap windchimes from the Dollar Tree. The kind with a metal shape like a snail or butterfly and then a few short strings with metal dangles hanging from them. They aren't much but it was a start. So I bought a snail and a dragonfly.
With the snail I removed all the metal dangles and then I strung new strings of pink cotton thread that were about the length of my arm. Then I hot glued wire loops to the back of seashells. I then strung them in patterns from the snail. The result was a very pretty windchime.
For the dragonfly I took the metal dangles from both sets of dollar store windchimes and hung them from the same pink thread. I alternated the colors and created a very pretty pattern.
The last set I made I made entirely from scratch. I used green wire to form a base loop. I wove three strands to strengthen it. I then bought some "table scatter" from the Dollar Tree, which is really pretty beads. I made a few more shells and a a few spirals of green wire. Then I strung it all together to make my windchimes. They came out really beautiful. I was very proud.
