Trim a paper cup and Punch 4 evenly-spaced holes around the cup's mouth. Paint the paper cup with poster paint and make your own designs.

Step 2
Cut 4 equal lengths of string approximately 12 inches long. Cut a 5th string that is 2 inches longer. Tie a small bell at the end of 4 of the strings. Set the 5th string aside for the pendulum.

Step 3
Cut drinking straws into 3/4 to 1-inch long pieces. String beads and drinking straws through each of the 4 strings. Leave an allowance of 1.5 to 2 inches at the top of each string.
Steps
Step 4
To make the pendulum, trim a pipe cleaner to around 6 inches and make a loop on one end. Attach a metal shank button or metal washer on the other end of the string.
Steps
Step 5
Punch a small hole at the center of the paper cup base. Attach the pendulum to the wind chimes by inserting the end of the pipe cleaner through the hole at the center of the paper cup. Loop the pipe cleaner on top to make the wind chimes' handle. Hang the wind chimes!
