DIY Unfinished Wood Wind Chimes
I purchased 2 bags of these and I am glad! All the little girls at my kids' craft party wanted the heart. They loved painting them. Even the mom's got into it too! The strings were a little tangled up, but that goes with packaging and they were easy to untangle.

I loved how these turned out, My two year old even loved it and these make a Great gift from a little one for all in the family.

We followed the advice of another reviewer and used water color paints which worked okay. If I did these again I would have the students just use markers and color them. They were hard to paint with the strings in the way. We water color painted the strings too and that looked kind of nice.

I had read that these were small but was kinda shocked at how small. They say 12 inches. Thats generous. The little chimes are about 2 inchs long and the wood middle is about the size of a quater. It does not tinkle like a wind chime should. My kids had a blast making them though. Next time I will get the chime kit and just get wood shapes from my local craft store.

Good Product but picture is deceiving
This product is a good one, however, it is much smaller than the picture depicts. Other than that a good product and the kids love painting them.

A little small
These are good quality but they are a little smaller than I expected, the length its as described but I thought the wood parts would be larger around. Otherwise I really like them and am enjoying designing them.

Cute But Tangly
These are cute but the strings are delicate and tend to tangle. They should be cheaper.

We did these with a group of kids for a summer craft day. The kids really liked them. These were one of the favorite crafts.

Used this with a class of 25 5th graders. Used water-down brown paint to look like stain, but less messy and permanent! Everyone loved it! (strings were a bit tangled upon opening)

Try these with watercolors!
These have a good sound and are something the kids really looked forward to taking home to share or give.
It was difficult to paint these with acrylics without having things stick together, so we used liquid watercolor instead. By using a combination of brushes and droppers my campers (ages 7-10) gave these a lovely "tie-dyed" look.
