You can use any size pvc piping as long as you have the pvc caps that coordinate with the pipe.
Christmas Bells From PVC
These vintage looking Christmas bells are a great knock off to the beautiful bells we’re all seeing on Instagram and in the magazines.
you could also use soup cans as they are approximately the same diameter as the pipe.
I used my chop saw and cut the pipe at different lengths.
These are the pvc caps I used. Your hardware store should have different sizes. I chose to pick the caps that are the same diameter as the pipe as opposed to caps that fit over the pipe. (You will eventually glue the two pieces together).
I then used a bit and drilled a hole in all my caps.
I used these curtain rod hooks.
I put the clip down through my opening I drilled.
You can clip your string for the dowel piece to this if you do it before you glue the two pvc parts together. Otherwise you will have to feed the string through the top. Either way works fine.
I cut my dowel pieces with the chop saw as well.
I then drilled a hole through each piece. This is so you can feed the string through and tie it.
I glued the cap to the pipe pieces with hot glue. I then used electrical tape around the joint because the glue looked a little messy.
I also added a skinny piece of washi tape around the base of the pipe. This isn’t necessarily but I thought it would give it a bit of interest.
Spray them gold, Dan some brown or black on them to give them an aged look and attach your string and dowel.
That’s it!! I’m really loving them.
The more the “merrier”!! Lol
Here’s my inspiration photo.
The bells are quite pricey and I couldn’t bring myself to spend that kind of money on something like that. Hope you enjoyed this DIY!!
