I found the large bells at the beginning of the holiday season and snapped up a few with these in mind. Putting it all together was relatively simple; it just involved cutting some decorative twine, some square knots, and deciding the right relative length at which to hang everything. I thought there were hoops at the bottom of the bell too, but turns out I was wrong. Luckily stringing the twine through the bottom of the bell the way I have it doesn't affect the ringing at all.
First, the one we kept: Moose, Christmas Stocking, Squirrel
One for my brother's family: Decorating the Tree, New Snow, Hospitality
One for my parents: Halling Border, Mittens, Dovre
One for Dave's parents: Selbu, Christmas Bells, Poinsettia
I love the way these turned out, and I had so much fun making them. I am really glad I managed to make something for everyone this holiday. I love the handmade decorations and ornaments I have and enjoy remembering their makers every year when we deck our halls at home.
