DIY Christmas Bells-Lotus Flowers

The best ideas come to those who rack their brains to find a cheaper version of something they’re obsessed with. Ha, maybe that’s just me. I always work best under price pressure. I found these wicker bells on McGee and Co. and loved the natural feel of them since my theme this year is Coastal Niece. While I get the price, I didn’t want to spend that on two bells for my Christmas mantel. I kept thinking there has to be a way to DIY Christmas bells that feel coastal and natural for a fraction of the cost.

So, on a Sunday morning, before everyone got up, I started DIYing. I made bells from K-cups and jute, but they felt ordinary. I attached the tops of wooden spoons to the K-cups, and it was an epic fail. I knew I needed something more round. Then I spotted a round, plastic ornament off to the side and thought, ah-ha!

I’m going to walk you through how to make these; just know they’re easy and fun to make. If I can do it, so can you. So, let’s make DIY lotus bells together. For each bell, you’ll need one round plastic ornament, one bell, 8 wooden spoons, Rub and Buff (optional), and jute for hanging.

You’ll cut the tops off 8 wooden spoons using gardening clippers or miter clippers. Then, cut the round ornament so that you keep the top part with the metal clasp.

Now, simply use a glue gun to attach them to the top. The first row has 4, leaving a small space in between. Then, the next row of 4 will be staggered.

Next, you’ll wipe, Rub, and Buff to the top of the metal clasp and add a bell with jute.

It’s really that simple. And the bell really works. What do you think? Each one costs under $2 to make. You can’t beat that! You can also make these and tie them to the tops of gifts as a personal ornament, add them to your tree, wreaths, or staircase.
