Originally, wind chimes appeared in ancient times as a symbol of luck and as a magic against the evil eye, both in Europe and Asia. These days, wind chimes are only used for a beautiful sound that you can get from them, and for the decor too, you can hang them both inside on the windows and outside on the porch. Now they are made up of hanging pipes, rods, bells or other objects and are often made of metal or wood. They are usually hung outside a building or residence as a visual and acoustic garden ornament and played by the wind. Would you like to make a few for your home or outdoors?
