Getting a lot of impact in your holiday front yard decorating can be difficult….and expensive. A lot of what’s out there isn’t necessarily the most sophisticated and if you do find what you want it will cost you a fortune. In trying to solve that problem, I created these oversized bells. The trick? They’re made from inexpensive plastic flower pots!
Flower pot (find ones that are a little rounded and more (uh) bell shaped.
Eye bolt with nut
Spray paint (make sure it works for plastic)
Round Christmas ball ornament
Drill a hole in the bottom of your pot that will be big enough for your screw eye to fit into. Then spray paint your pots. I did mine inside and out, but just outside would be fine.
Insert the screw eye though the hole and secure on the inside with the nut.
Tie a string from the nut and attach the Christmas ball.
To hang mine, I got a long piece of wide outdoor ribbons and simple passed them though the screw eyes tying a knot around each one to secure it in place. I then put a nail in our post and hung the first screw eye on it and let the rest of the bells just hang!
