materials

  • Brass bells (Pictured: Viva Terra temple bells, in Mini and Small, $9 and $19 each, vivaterra.com)

  • Wired twine (Pictured: Ashland natural wired twine, $3.50 for 10', michaels.com)

  • A spray of cedar

  • Grosgrain ribbon

  • Natural twine

steps

  1. Use natural twine to attach brass-plated bells to a spray of cedar, which ups the pretty factor and buffers the door to keep the chime gentle (not jarring).

  2. Wrap the stem and twine with grosgrain ribbon, leaving a loop at the top for hanging, and tie it above the bells in a no-fuss knot.
