DIY Christmas Bells Instructions

Step 1: Glue Rope to Cups

Start by applying a line of hot glue along the top rim of the plastic cup and pressing the nautical rope firmly on top. Continue wrapping and gluing the rope around the cup until you reach the top of the cup. If you run out of nautical rope, seamlessly attach a new piece where you left off.

Flip the cup over and apply hot glue to the bottom flat section. Wrap the rope in the middle and press firmly. Leave about 12 inches of nautical rope to hang from.

Step 2: Repeat

Repeat the process for the second bell, and you can make a third if desired.

Step 3: Add Jingle Bells

Tie a piece of ribbon or jute twine to one of the jingle bell ornaments (or use the string that came with the bells). You want the string to be just long enough that the bell hangs out of the cup section a little bit. Glue the string to flat end of the cup in the center.

Bonus Jingle Cheer: Use 2 small bells inside each cup for extra jingling holiday cheer!

Step 4: Add Ribbon Bow

Cut two pieces of red satin ribbon (about 6 inches each) and create a simple bow.

Attach the bow to the top of the bell using hot glue.

Step 5: Add Greenery

Trim the boxwood or greenery pick to fit the top of the bell. Apply hot glue to the ends and press them underneath the bow.

Step 6: Tie a Knot for Hanging

Tie the two end pieces of the nautical rope together in a simple knot for hanging.

Variations for DIY Christmas Bells

  1. Color Palette: Experiment with different colors of nautical rope and ribbon to match your holiday theme.
  2. Additional Decorations: Enhance your wreath by adding small ornaments, holly berries, or artificial snow.
  3. Personalized Touch: Attach miniature photo frames or small personalized ornaments to make it uniquely yours.
  4. Gold Bells: If you want to have traditional gold Christmas bells, wrap the cups with gold tinsel instead, or use a thicker cup (like a pencil cup) and spray paint it antique gold. Add rub n’ buff if you’d like extra patina, then attach the rope with glue or by putting a small hole in the top of the cup.
  5. Jumbo Bells: Use the same concept, but use large bell ornaments and a Dollar Tree bucket to supersize the Christmas bells DIY.
