How to Make an Abalone Wind Chime - DIY Mermaid Beach Home Decor

What to do with an Abalone Sea Shell...?

Abalone shells are beautiful! But they're too heavy (and too large) to make a necklace out of, they're not ideal for making into a sea shell bra (because I know you've thought about it too!), and using them as a dish to hold nik-naks only hides their gorgeous insides. So what can you do with them?

I was faced with that dilemma when I ended up spontaneously adopting one from the crafting store over the Summer. I don't know what compelled me to transform it into a wind chime, but I really like how the end result turned out! The chiming noise it makes is so pretty and the design really allows the natural beauty of the shell to shine. Here's a video tutorial that I created a while back teaching you how to make this cute and beachy home decor piece:

Did you enjoy this video tutorial? I hope so! Because I plan on doing many more beachy home decor DIY videos in the future! If there's something you'd like me to show you how to create please don't be afraid to reach out to me in the comments! 

Hopefully this project will add a little magic to your day.
