If you love all things vintage, you’re gonna flip over this tart tin bell ornament!
Supplies needed for this project :
- Three mini tart tins
- Wooden 1″ cubes
- E6000 glue
- A knob for the handle
- Twine or string to tie ribbon
- Hot glue
If you don’t have exactly what is pictured here, you can substitute with other supplies! The tinsel, the bells, and the wood cubes came from the Dollar Tree. Check antique stores for the vintage tins, but you can also find them new on Amazon. Maybe not in these exact shapes, but retailers are starting to catch on to how popular vintage is becoming once again.
The first thing you want to do is glue your first wooden cube onto the center of your largest tin. This will require some patience, as it takes a bit longer for E6000 to set up. You don’t want to use hot glue however, because hot glue and metal are not friends.
Depending on your next size tin, you might want to add an extra cube like I did here.
Once that has had some time to set up, glue the next tin onto the cubes.
Wait a bit longer… go grab a snack.. come back and glue on your next cube onto the top of the second tin.
You likely will need another cube for your top tin, so go ahead and add one to it, also.
Once those are set, glue the top tin to the center tin.
This is what we have so far? What do you think?
Next, we need a handle for our bell, so I chose one of these wooden knobs that a sweet follower recently sent me.
Doesn’t look like much yet, but it will.
I found this tinsel at the Dollar Tree and I used it to hide my wooden cubes and to further that vintage appeal! Do you remember tinsel on your trees? Sigh.. <3
Look how sweet it looks with the tinsel added! I started with a dab of hot glue on one side of the cube, and just wrapped it around a few times and glued it into place and cut it.
I did the same for the middle as well.
Looking very vintage-y, right?!
Now for the bells. I added ribbon to each of them to be able to hang them from the bottom.
That ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. It seems to have a vintage vibe in my opinion.
Afterwards, I attached them to the underside of the bottom tin.
More tinsel was added here to cover up where the ribbon was glued.
Last thing I did was add a ribbon hanger and a bow to the handle.
I used the awareness bow method that you can see >>HERE<<.
How sweet is this?!
I just love how it turned out! Here it is in daylight.
One of my favorite photo spots is right in front of our fir trees out back by our deck.
