This DIY Christmas wreath with bells and black ticking stripe ribbon is a quick craft to make! Use this easy tutorial to make your own!
I love black and white farmhouse style Christmas décor. This wreath is the perfect classic Christmas wreath! The bells and black ticking stripe ribbon are such a great combination.
I already had the grapevine wreath, the jute twine, and all the other supplies. The only thing I had to purchase for this wreath were the bells and the ticking stripe ribbon.
The bells were actually purchased last year, but they didn’t arrive in time to use them for Christmas. So, I saved them for this year, and I’m so glad I finally got to use them. They added the perfect touch to this wreath!
How to Make a Christmas Wreath with Bells
Making your own DIY Christmas wreath with bells is super easy. I’ll summarize the simple steps here, and then go into more detail below.
- To make this wreath, first you’ll need to gather your materials.
- Tie a piece of twine to each bell (I used a piece of twine about 25″ long)
- Hang the bells in a cluster and at varying lengths so each bell is a different length.
- Tie the cluster of bells to together and then tie the bells to the top of the wreath.
- Add greenery to the top of the wreath.
- Tie ticking stripe ribbon in a bow and attach to the bottom of the wreath.
- Hang wreath on the door, or wherever you want it to hang.
DIY Christmas Wreath with Bells Tips and Ideas
- I added evergreen branches to the top of a grapevine wreath, but you could also use an evergreen wreath (real or artificial) and then add bells and ribbon.
- Feel free to vary the placement of the ribbon. It would also look great at the top of the wreath.
- Change up the look of this wreath by using different ribbon (red ticking stripe would also be cute!).
- Use larger bells (maybe a group of three large ones) for a different look.
- This wreath looks great on the front door, but it’s also perfect for inside the house!

Supplies Needed to Make This Wreath
All you need are a few supplies for this easy-to-make Christmas wreath. It’s a fun, relaxed project for an afternoon.
You’ll need the following supplies for this project:
- Grapevine wreath
- Brass bells (I used 6, but 5 is a good number, too)
- Jute twine
- Floral wire
- Scissors (any kind will work)
- Wreath hanger
- Pruning shears (optional, for cutting evergreen boughs to use on the wreath—you can also use artificial greenery, like this)
DIY Christmas Wreath with Bells Tutorial
The very first step with this DIY Christmas wreath began with gathering evergreen boughs from the yard. Feel free to use artificial evergreen stems if you prefer.
Gather up the rest of your supplies (wreath, bells, jute, scissors, floral wire).
Determine where the top of the wreath is going to be.
To make a cluster of bells, cut lengths of jute twine to tie to each bell. The length of the twine will probably depend of the size of your wreath.
I cut my twine pieces about 25 inches long.
Then, tie each bell to a piece of twine. I tied mine in a knot to make sure they were secure.
After tying to the pieces of twine, gather all the bells together, holding them up by the twine.
Hang the bells in a cluster at varying lengths, and then tie the cluster of bells together. If any of the twine ends tying the bells together seem too long, trim them where you want them.
Tie the twine with the bells to the top of the wreath. I tied the twine around one of the grapevine pieces, and then I also added some florist’s wire for added security.
The florist’s wire just adds a bit of extra security, but it’s optional.
Tuck the greenery into the top of the wreath, weaving it into the grapevines. Use the floral wire to secure them if necessary.
Finally, tie the ribbon into a bow (I just made a simple bow, like tying a shoelace) and attach it to the bottom of the wreath.
To attach the bow, I threaded a piece of floral wire through the center part of the bow, and then I threaded the wire around the grapevines on the wreath and twisted it to secure it.
After tying the wire attached to the bow onto the wreath, tuck the wire out of sight, behind the bow.
Make sure the wreath looks the way you want it to look. Add more greenery if desired.
Hang your completed wreath on the front door (or wherever you want to use it), and enjoy!
