Robyn from Robyn’s French Nest found a branch in her yard and strung an assortment of different sized bells from it. I love the rustic, glam look against her farmhouse hutch.
If you like it, put a brass bell on it! I love how Jenn of Clean and Scentsible added a cascading rope of small brass bells to a boho basket hung on her wall.
I love the smaller brass bells strung from chunky rope cascading down Rachel of Maison de Pax’s Christmas mantel.
Make a statement on a bannister with a variety of differently sizes brass bells like these from Finding Lovely. She paired them ribbons in brown and cream.
Add a festive ribbon to top off a trio of brass bells like this lovely one from Southern Housepitality.
If silver is more your style, this beautiful silver bell garland on Annette of Azure Farm incorporates it into her Christmas mantel beautifully (her marble herringbone tile is also the same as my kitchen backsplash).
If you want the look of brass bells but don’t want the cost, you can make your own like Cara from The Inspired Workshop did and can you believe most of her supplied were found in her recycling bin!
Can you believe Tania of Little Vintage Cottage created these brass bells from toilet paper rolls?!
Or make these brass bells from Dollar Store supplies like Katie at Little House of Four did.
If you can’t get enough brass bells, Andrea of Pine and Prospect Home created the cutest free printables!
