We're incredibly fortunate to live on the coast and be able to visit the beach whenever the whim takes us; making memories, gathering treasures, and enjoying the wonders of nature. When we come home it's always time to empty our pockets and examine our prized possessions, debating our latest way of storing them and remembering the fun.
This time we went for a driftwood windchime.
What we used:
- natural twine
- shells with holes in it
- a hand drill
- a workbench with a vice
- a large darning needle
What we did:
- Clamp the wood in the vice/workbench and drill holes in the middle of each piece using the hand drill.
- Tie a double knot in the end of the string and thread the other end through the darning needle.
- Thread through the driftwood and shells alternating between the two.
- Tie a large loop in the end and hang on a tree to blow in the warm, Summer breeze.
