I found this lovely DIY project, Festive Door Bells, from Real Simple (via Pinterest). It inspired me to create something similar. The “door bells” turned out so beautifully that I decided to make a set for each of my neighbours. Mademoiselle Belle eagerly assisted me and we hung the bells over the front door handles to (hopefully) pleasantly surprise our neighbours.

Image above: It’s a fairly simple project – using only festive ribbon, large silver bells and gift tags.
The only tips I would give for this project are to:
- choose a small thin ribbon that you can easily weave through the top of the silver bells.
- Look for large jingly silver bells. The first pack that I bought weren’t very jingly and didn’t really make any noise. The second pack that I bought (above) were perfect.
- Download one of the many freebie gift tag templates kindly donated by bloggers all over the world. Check out my Pinterest Festive Season board for some fabulous festive designs.
