DIY home décor clay pot bells

Welcome to the Home Décor Craft + DIY Blog Hop! If you are visiting from Amanda of The Ginger Home, welcome. Her rolling library ladder tutorial was AMAZING!

Last year I did a DIY Painted Kitchen Rug/Runner that was a lot of fun.

This year I decided to make some DIY Home Décor Clay Pot Bells! Since ‘coral’ is one of my Spring Home Tour colors this year — this light terra cotta decoration became the perfect addition!!!

I was inspired by the 4 Giant Cow Bells that I had purchased and displayed in my Christmas home décor tour. Here’s a close up of those below.

Plus, I’ve also been crushing on the ceramic bells I’ve seen popping up in homes like…

Designer Emily Henderson who used a trio of ceramic bells with a simple pattern to add interest to her wall without overcrowding it.

My client Erin of Kismet House used three white and tan bells in varying sizes to hang from wooden pegs.

And again, three ceramic bells appear on a wall at a home designed by Studio-McGee.

My diy home décor clay pot bells are purely for décor and don’t actually make that lovely sound that hand-thrown clay bells make, but they sure look fabulous on my modern ladder! And cost me less than $5!!!!

Here’s what you’re going to need to make my decorative DIY home décor clay pot bells…

SUPPLIES:

-4 clay pots (3.5 in diameter, came in a set of two for $1 at the Dollar Store)

-Natural sisal rope (¼” size or smaller. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby for $2.49, but any craft store will have rope or chord)

-Optional: you could attach a round bell or ¼” copper pipe – if you want to make an actual working bell to the inside of each clay pot. You could also paint your clay pots with acrylic paint (I did not do this – they were the perfect color already for my spring home décor)

TOOLS:

-scissors to cut the rope

INSTRUCTIONS:

Step 1:  Cut one 50″ length piece of rope and cut one 60″ length piece of rope.

Step 2: Feed one end of the 50″ piece of rope through the hole in the bottom of one clay pot. Inside the clay pot, tie a knot. Next, feed the other end of the 50” piece of rope through the bottom hole of another clay pot and tie a knot inside the pot.

Step 3: Repeat step 2, but use the 60″ piece of rope.

Step 4: Stagger the length of the 50″ clay pot rope and tie a loop knot in order to hang the bells. Repeat a loop knot for the 60″ length of clay pot rope.

Note: I tied a loop knot in each bell set, but you can also tie both sets of rope cords into one large knot together. Either way, the loop knot allows you to hang them easily on a decorative wall hook, door handle, wreath or in my case, a ladder.

Whether you decide to make a set of bells, like I did, or individual bells to hang on a wall, these would be a lovely (inexpensive) gift for a friend or a beautiful way to decorate your home any time of the year. Don’t you think?
