Mornin’ ladies! Come, wake up to cool breeze, a sunny bed and seashell windchime. Need some coffee? Come on along, come my beauties. I’m in the mood to play host.
Remember my walk by the beach post? Where I picked up crabs, shells and a lot of beachy things? No? Well, I stay about an hour and a half from the beach and I have access to beautiful, FREE, beachy things that I get home every weekend- I’ve been officially branded as the “trash” queen. No woman, no cry…them people dont know what I see.
Moving on, I had these really cute ice cream cups, that I’d saved: I knew it right from the start that they’d become windchime. But honestly, a seashell windchime or a seashell mobile, as you would like to call, was not on my mind. It just began randomly with me wrapping twine around the cups. My original plan was to attach some bells and crystals. But soon after I was surrounded with lots of shells and I was drilling holes in them. These things happen to me. Random ideas. For all you know, a minute before I was thinking about how ugly Pamela Anderson looks.
I poked two holes in the cups and ran a twine through both of them keeping about 20cm length in between the two. Tie a knot below the holes to keep it in place. Next, I drilled tiny holes in the shells and attached them to the freestanding twine. Honestly, you can really get creative or lazy at this point. Attach randomly or in a pattern- its all fair in love, war and this seashell windchime.
I have put together a small video as to how it moves, look and feel. I hope you all will enjoy!
