DIY Wine Bottle Wind Chimes

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know that every Friday night Scott and I have a TGIF celebration with a glass of wine.  Naturally I have always wanted to do something fun with recycled wine bottles.  So, I combined my love for wine with my love for Aleene's glues, and created these wind chimes.  The brand new Aleene's Ultimate Multi-Surface Adhesive™ is great for use on metal, glass and other surfaces, so I knew it would be the perfect choice for my  Recycled Wine Bottle Wind Chimes project. 

Here's the supplies you'll need for a 
recycled wine bottle wind chime:

Recycled Wine Bottle
24 Gauge Wire and Wire Cutters
Recycled Jar Lids
Flat Glass Stones
Beads and Baubles
Hammer and Large Nail
Chain to Hang 

Punch holes in the tops and bottoms of the recycled lids with your hammer and a large nail.  Then line up the lids into 3 rows.  I did mine in an even design, but you can lay them out any way you like.  I also placed my beads and baubles where I wanted them.

Next, I threaded the 24 gauge wire through the punched holes to string the 3 rows together.  It's smart to keep them laying on the table as you work so that you can keep everything even and be able to see how it's going to hang.  Be sure and leave at least 12 inches of wire at the top of each row, and put a large bobble at the bottom.  You could even add corks at the bottom to carry out the wine theme.

Now to jazz up the boring lids, you can glue on the flat glass stones.  Be sure both the lids and the stones are squeaky clean so that the glue sticks really well.  Especially since you'll probably hang the wind chimes outdoors.

Squeeze a dot Aleene's Ultimate Multi-Surface Adhesive™ on the backs of all the stones and let them set for about 2 minutes while you squeeze glue onto the jar lids.  Then press each stone onto the lid.  Let the glue set for 24 hours before hanging outdoors to insure adhesion.

Wire the 3 rows of chimes to the recycled wine bottle.  Wire a heavy chain to the other side of the bottle.  And then add Aleene's Ultimate Multi-Surface Adhesive™ to keep the wire from sliding around on the glass bottle.  
Let it dry, and it's ready to hang!

I hope you are enjoying my DIY journey and keep coming back for more ideas, tips, 
how-to's, and projects to

Using the same mechanical replica watches as the pocket watches, they were also considered an art collectible or used as jewelry. To fulfil the desires of a world in continuous change, rolex replica sale designers have created more and more sophisticated models. For a couple of decades, the electric rado replica were used, until the use of quartz watches. Watch designers have created special rolex submariner replica for activities such as space travel, diving and many more.

Made out of precious metals such as gold or carved with gemstones, personalized or not, watches can represent many types of personalities. Different rolex replica uk with different wardrobe preferences have a real need for a proper watch.

This seems to work best when the soil is already damp, so water before you go out of town, and then add the water bottles to the planters. wholesale liquor bottles
