Over time wind chimes can need restringing. Weather and breezes cause the tubes to move, creating delightful musical tones, but they also wear out the connecting strings over time. Take into consideration where the wind chime is located and how heavy the individual tubes are. Use the wind chime as a guide when replacing the strings.

After some time, tubular wind chimes will need to be restrung.

Step 1

Measure the length of the current strings attaching tubes to base. Use the largest as a guide and write down the length of the string to each tube.

Step 2

Measure out fishing line. Cut into lengths according to your preceding measurements. Allow 2 to 3 inches excess on either end for tying.

Step 3

Remember there are varying thicknesses of fishing line available--choose according to the weight of the wind chime tubes. Tie each onto the base beginning with the largest tube and working your way down. Hang up and enjoy.
