pony bead wind chime

Prices may vary instore and online.
Step 1

Decorate six craft sticks as desired with markers.

Step 2

Arrange the sticks into a hexagon shape and allow the ends to overlap. Glue together where they overlap. Set aside to dry.

Step 3

Cut a 28" [71.1 cm] piece of yarn. Fold it in half and tie a knot in the yarn about 3" [7.6 m] from the bend. Add a pony bead above the knot then tie a knot above the bead.
TIP: To make the treading easier, wrap a piece of household tape around the end of the yarn and cut at an angle to work as a needle.

Step 4

Cut two 20" [50.8 cm] pieces of yarn and fold them in half. Now, tie them around the knot below the beads added in Step 3.

Step 5

Take five of the six strands hanging below the beads and tie them evenly around your wood hexagon. Lift by the hanger to make sure your hexagon is balanced.
TIP: You will have a sixth strand that will hang down the middle of your wind chime.

Step 6

String beads to the sixth strand hanging down the middle. Tie knots in the yarn as you string to create sections of beads, if desired. Tie a double (or triple) knot in the end to secure the beads and trim excess yarn.

Step 7

Cut five lengths of yarn long enough for the bead strands you would like to add around the outside of your wind chime.
TIP: Use image as a guide.

Step 8

Tie the five yarn strands to the wood hexagon where you have tied the five strands in Step 5.

Step 9

String beads on the five strands as you did in Step 6. Make sure you add beads somewhat evenly, so your wind chime stays balanced when hung.
TIP: Add bells within your beads if you would like more sound to your wind chime.
