Easy DIY Jingle Bell Door Hanger Ornament…

It’s almost hard to believe that Christmas is just five weeks away.  Where has the year gone? We are busy readying our homes, making baking lists, purchased tickets for a local tour of homes and have filled our calendars with party and dinner celebrations.

An easy to make Jingle Bell Door hanger - makes an excellent hostess gift!I started thinking about hostess gifts and knew I wanted to make something different. Our first Christmas invite is Thanksgiving weekend so I knew I needed to get to work right away. I decided to create a Jingle Bell Door Hanger. This is what I used:

  • Large over-sized bells that I found on Amazon for $2.00 each
  • A holly pick with berries from Dollar Tree
  • A package of red cardinals, also picked up at Dollar Tree
  • Hot glue
  • Rope or ribbon

I braided the rope and tied a loose knot at the top bell.
