Rock Wind Chime Craft

Sherri Osborn
Follow these directions and you can make some wind chimes using rocks, ribbon, and a stick.

  • Age Guideline: 8 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

Instructions:
Go hunting for 12 small rocks. Clean the rocks and let them dry.

Cut 3 pieces or ribbon about 24-inches long. They do not have to all be exactly the same length. Start off by wrapping the ribbon around one rock, leaving about a 2-inch tail. Use glue to secure the ribbon to the rock. Move up the ribbon about 2 more inches, and wrap it around another rock. Glue it to secure. Add two more rocks to this first ribbon the same way. Now do the same to the other two pieces of ribbon you cut.

Wrap one end of each rock covered ribbon around the stick and use glue to secure them in place. Space them evenly along the stick.

Cut a piece of ribbon about 8-inches long. This will be the hanger. Wrap each end around the stick, towards each end, and glue them in place.

Finally, for a finishing touch, cut 3 pieces of ribbon and tie them into bows and glue them onto the stick to cover there the other ribbons are glued on. Once all of the glue is dry, you can hang and enjoy your wind chime.
