Things You'll Need
Roll out the air dry clay 1/4 inch thick .
Cut clay into a circle (around the bowl).
Press a hole into the center of the clay circle.
Press the clay circle into the bowl and allow to dry overnight. After it's dried, smooth the edges of the clay on the side of bowl.
Gently sand the edges of the clay bowls once they have dried completely .
Paint the clay bowls with craft paint. We chose this blue color to make a colorful wind chime, but you could use a terra cotta, white, black ... really, any color that matches your decor!
Use twine to thread the clay bowls together. (You could also use fishing line.) Tie a few knots on the twine and then thread through the hole. You can add a bit of hot glue if needed.
Continue adding the clay bowls, leaving about two inches of twine in between.
And you're done! Hang your beautiful wind chime in your home as a wall hanging or in your garden as pretty garden decor.
