You don’t need a turbine to harness the power of the wind. Easy, breezy chimes work just as well—not only are they a creative way to teach kids about air flow and how it works, but they’re also an awesome update your backyard décor. From egg cartons and ice cream spoons to seashells and tin cans, click through the gallery of cute wind chime crafts that will blow you away.

Fairy Fabulous

Who doesn’t love to believe in fairy tales? These cute little wind chimes make a sweet tinkering sound that your own fabulous fairy will love. There are quite a few (but do-able) steps. You'll need beads, small jingle bells, wire and miniature flower pots. Lori over at Beneath the Rowan Tree gives us detailed steps.
