Make Your Own Fairy Wind Chimes – Easy DIY
We love making things for our fairy gardens. Sometimes the fairy crafts take a while and sometimes, they’re quick and easy. Like this fairy hammock or these delicate fairy wind chimes. And they actually work too 😀 Isn’t that awesome? Just a gentle touch and a bit of fairy dust is all that’s needed bring forth their delicate sound.
What You Need to Make Fairy Wind Chimes:
- Long tubular beads
- Seed beads
- 1 Spacer bead with holes. That’s the one that looks like a little flower in the pic below
- Jewelry wire
- Jewelry thingy that looks like a wavy shepherd’s crook. I have no idea what’s its actually called 😀
- Teeny bell (the secret ingredient )
How to Make Fairy Wind Chimes
Start by cutting your jewelry wire into 8 pieces. My spacer bead had 16 little holes around the bottom sides. Cut eight tube beads into various lengths, ranging from long to short.
Thread the jewelry wire up through one of the holes and down into the next hole. Twist to tighten.
Add the longest tube bead and a seed bead and then thread the wire back up into the tube. Repeat using the next longest tube bead.
Once all the tubes have been added, cut a piece of wire about 10 cm long, bend it in half and add the teeny bell in the bend.
Thread a seed bead to hold the bell in place and then push the bent wire up through the middle hole in the spacer.
Add a few more seed beads and the fairy wind chime is almost done. Give her a gentle nudge and hear the tinkle 😀 Attach the wind chimes to the wavy, shepherd’s crook thingy and she’s ready for your fairy garden.
The wind chimes look lovely paired with our fairy picnic table or hang them close to a fairy bridge that’s been made from an upcycled plastic container.
And if you listen carefully you’ll hear them dancing in the wind 😉
If you want to make a fairy wind chime don’t forget to pin it for later.

I think these are the most adorable little chimes ever!! I create little planters from tea cups, gravy boats etc. These along with the other things I add will just make them so much cuter. Thank you for the amazing post. When I have time to create, I will post a photo 🍄 🧚🏼♀️ 🌸
I popped over to your Facebook page and absolutely loved seeing all your amazing creations, Julie. I’ll be following along for more.
What did you use to cut your tubes? I’m using wire cutters and it ruins the aesthetic. I end up with crushed tubes.
I used small cutters too and flat nose pliers to lightly squish the cut side back into shape.
Your Shepard’s Hook is actually a bookmark blank. You would use them to add decorations to make a bookmark.
Thank you so much Heidi, that’s great to know.
Thank you.. I knew I saw them somewhere
Thank you.. I knew I saw them somewhere
Wondering how long these are. The ones I see are just over 3” and doesn’t give much space once pushed into the dirt to have anything hang from it. The search is on ha ha
so beautiful I will have to make a few of them.
Thank you Kathy 🙂
thanks so much, and yes your a bit to far from Texas, haha!
I just love this! I’m gathering all my supplies to make this and for some reason I can not find the long tube beads! I have been to our local hobby lobby and Michaels stores and even Walmart and target. I can’t believe these are hard to find where I live. Do you remember where you got the long tube beads. I can find the shorter ones but not the longer ones, thanks so much!
Hi Becky, I wish I could help. I got mine at a little bead shop in Centurion South Africa, which is probably a bit far for you to travel. Depending on how short your shorter ones are you might be able to stack them on top of each other to make a longer one? I hope you come right. Sending lots of fairy hugs from South Africa.
I found the long glass beads at Joann’s. Any idea where I can find small Bells?
Try Joannes Fabric and Dollar Tree, OR any dollar store.. I’ve seen them a couple times in sets with other beads…
Amazon has them
