I love the look and sound of wind chimes though they drive my husband crazy.  Still, I thought I would give you my take on the terracotta pot wind chimes.  They are super easy to make and can be decorated however you would like.  I chose a bumble bee theme for mine.

What you will Need:

  • 3-4 terracotta pots in graduated sizes.  I used three from the smallest to medium sized
  • Beads with a large hole.
  • Twine
  • Acrylic Paints
  • Charms
  • Paint brushes and Q-tips

Step 1: Terracotta Pot Wind Chimes

Paint your terracotta pots in the design that you would like.  I painted the large pot with bumble bees and the smaller pots with black, white and yellow dots.  I used background colors of black and yellow for my theme.

Once all of the paint has dried begin putting the pots together.  I found a packet of three charms that had a large bee and two smaller ones.  I combined the three charms together on one ring. I took a length of twine, however long you would like depending on the size and number of pots you used and threaded it through the charms.

With both pieces of twine in your hand tie a knot about 1/4″ – 1/2″ above the charms.  Place a bead on top of the knot.

Place the smallest of your pots on top of the bead.  Tie another knot about 1/4″ – 1/2″ above the pot and place another bead.

Step 5: Terracotta Pot Wind Chimes

Place the next pot on top of the bead and continue in that manner until you have finished with your pots.

Step 6: Terracotta Pot Wind Chimes

Add some beads to the tip of the last pot for decoration and tied a know in the twine where you want the chime to hang and you have finished your terracotta pot wind chimes.
