Ribbon Wind Chime

Well, as summer is really getting under way I have been able to go into my new classroom.  (I will be posting pics soon).  There is so much to be done and although it is a little overwhelming, I am so excited.  I have been taking some pinterest projects and working on them.  So here is a tutorial on a ribbon wind chime.  Here is the one that inspired me.  

Here are my materials and finished product. 
 I am so in love an can't wait to hang it in my classroom. 
I chose 8 different colored ribbons to make it vary and I wanted to 
add some patterns to my end product too.  Solids were $1 each
and the patterned ribbon was on sale for 2 for $2.50.

I think this is a 7" embroidery hoop.  It cost me about $1.50

Here is my lovely girl holding the finished ribbon wind chime. 
 What do you thing?  


  1. Love your windchime and you got me thinking! Wouldn't it be great to find some ribbon that children could write on. They could each write something about themselves on it - their names and things they like maybe! It could then be hung in the classroom as "The Things We Like Windchime"! Just an idea but thanks for the inspiration!
    Glad I found your blog!

    1. That is a fabulous idea! Wish I had thought of that before, maybe I can make another one when the school year starts.
