Bows and Bells

Recently my mom and I worked on decorating her rustic country style living room for Christmas. To fit with the style of the room we decided to create burlap ornaments and bells for the Christmas tree in the space.

Burlap Ornaments

Check out the pictures below to see how we made these ornaments:


  • Ball Ornaments
  • Burlap (cut into pieces)
  • Ribbon
  • Faux Berries


  1. Place ball in the middle of a piece of burlap fabric.
  2. Wrap burlap around the ball and gather at the top.
  3. Secure extra fabric at the top with ribbon, tie in a bow.
  4. Add in fake berries around the ribbon.
  5. Place hook in ornament and hang on tree.

Bell Ornaments


  • Rustic Bells
  • Silver bells
  • Ribbon


  1. Cut ribbon to size.
  2. Loop the ribbon through the bell to create an ornament.
  3. Tie the ribbon.

Did you create any new ornaments for your Christmas tree this year?
