Bell Swag

Way back in May, when Captain Cavedweller and I took a last-minute trip to the Oregon coast, we wandered into a Christmas store (because I can wander into Christmas anytime of the year!).

In the far back corner of the store, I found three metal bells that were embossed and vintage-looking. At the time, I had no idea what I’d do with them, but I wanted them.  They were the last and only bells the store had in stock, so I took them, even though one of them had a broken cord. No biggie.

A few weeks ago, when I was thinking about holiday decorations, I recalled those bells I’d purchased and decided they’d make a wonderful swag to hang by our front door.

Turns out – that was quite a lovely decision!

It took me all of about five minutes to make this, but I started with a nice swag from Hobby Lobby.

If you have greens and not a swag, wire them together so they look like a swag. Add a hanger on the back.

Decide where you’d like the bells placed on the swag, then wire them on.

Make a fluffy bow and add it.

Hang and enjoy your beautiful new swag!


What do you have hanging on your front door?

  1. I am not very crafty but this looks lovely. I have a wreath with a red truck in the middle hanging on my front door.

  2. You bell swag turned out lovely. At the moment there is nothing hanging on the front door. My plants for decorating this year have hit a snag and I am not sure how much I will get done. I’ll just have to enjoy what others have done.
