DIY Christmas Ornament Door-hanger & Link-Up!

I have been seeing a lot of beautiful Christmas wreaths on Pinterest and I wanted to make one but then I decided to do something different because sometimes I like to just be different.

I took a flimsy wire hanger and cut the top off, straightened the hanger out and then wrapped it around a spaghetti jar to make it circular. Then I twisted it around itself until it wouldn't twist anymore so that it would hold the shape. And here are the supplies I used. I bought the bells, the ornament and 1 pack of ribbon for $1 each at the Dollar Store and I already had 1 pack of ribbon and the hanger.

I twisted a piece of ribbon around the hanger and I threaded the ornament and bells with ribbon and tied them on to the hanger at different lengths. Here Grandboy is helping me...

I didn't want my bells to be the same length because I thought it would look better hanging on a door knob with them being different.

After I got all the bells tied on the hanger, I tied a piece of pretty ribbon around all the ribbon holding the bells and made a pretty bow. And there you have a Christmas Door Hanger.

The more I looked at it, I decide it would look better if I eliminated some of the ribbon holding the bells. So instead of one big piece looped and tied at the top, I now have a shorter piece tied at the top and at the bell itself. Looks much better I think.
