Wooden Valentine Chimes{Northshore Days}

Hey Everyone,
I’m Natalie and I blog over at NorthShore Days.
I am the lucky mum of 3 lovely and sometimes downright naughty kids. I’ve been married to my Sean for 14 years and we live on the beautiful NorthShore in Auckland, New Zealand.
 
 
I’m so excited to be here at the CSI Project again !!!
Today I’m going to share my Wooden Valentine Chimes.
I love decorating with hearts,even outside of Valentines Day. 
This project has been at the back of my mind for a while and this week I finally made these wooden wind chimes.
 
So simple and so easy, all I used was a pack of wooden hearts from Spotlight and rub-on words.
I found the wooden round hanger thing, laying out in the garden, once a part of some longtime lost windchimes.
 
I painted the hearts grey, then white, distressed them and added the rub-on words. I also distressed the wording very carefully once it was on the wood.
 
I made a little hole in each of the hearts and threaded string through
 the hearts and the round hanger, making sure to position the hearts at different lengths but with the tips and tops touching slightly.
 
 
I love the noise these little chimes make as they catch the breeze 
 
 The words I used are “Love”, “Dream” and “Believe”…. Such strong words!
 
 Hanging in the window next to my work station, I can look at them every day. Of course I can hear them clinking together too.
 
Take care everyone,

    They are really cute! I wish you had a video of how they sound. I think I’m picky about what I want clinking outside :). Great job!
