Originally wind chimes appeared in ancient times as a symbol of good fortune and a charm against the evil eye, both in Europe and Asia. Today wind chimes are used just for a beautiful sound you can get from them and for the décor, too, you may hang them both indoors by the windows or outside, for example, on the porch. Now they are constructed from suspended tubes, rods, bells or other objects and are often made of metal or wood. They are usually hung outside of a building or residence as a visual and aural garden ornament, and are played by the wind. Wanna make a couple of them for your home or outdoors?
