HOW TO MAKE An Easy Clay Pot Wind Chime DIY

Paint the clay pot with white chalk paint using a chip brush. You don’t have to cover the pot with a solid coat, as it will be covered up with tissue paper and duct tape. But, give it a light layer of paint. Let dry. You can use a heat gun to speed up the process. You know I love my heat gun.

Start adding duct tape across the top portion of the clay pot. Use scissors to cut the end. Press the tape down under the ridge of the pot and along the inside of the pot, so the tape is flat.

Cut a piece of tissue paper to place under the duct tape around the pot. Lightly use a foam brush to add mod podge to the clay pot, and on top of the tissue paper. Be sure to work lightly, as the tissue paper will tear easily.

Continue to add pieces of tissue paper to the clay pot with mod podge until it is about 3/4 of the way covered. Add another piece of the pretty black and white duct tape to the bottom of the clay pot, and fold it along the bottom.

Don’t you love the pretty colors in this tissue paper? The pops of color really stand out against the black. And, the duct tape gives it such dimension and texture.

Wrap wire around the wind chime piece and secure it through the hole in the clay pot. Add a little hot glue to secure it to the clay pot.

Now you can take the chain that came with the wind chime and attach it to the bell through the hole. Break off some of the pretty flowers and hot glue them across the top of the wind chime. You can also add some of the leaves. The flowers give extra color and also cover the hole on top of the wind chime.
