1916 Children & Lambs – DIY Easter Bell Pull

These precious Easter Children and little lambs were simply begging to become another Bell Pull for my sister: Wings of Whimsy: Children & Lambs 1916 - DIY Easter Bell Pull #vintage #ephemera #freebie #printable #postcard #easter #children #lambs Wings of Whimsy: Children & Lambs 1916 - DIY Easter Bell Pull #vintage #ephemera #freebie #printable #postcard #easter #children #lambs Wings of Whimsy: Children & Lambs 1916 - DIY Easter Bell Pull #vintage #ephemera #freebie #printable #postcard #easter #children #lambs

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Print out and glue the 3 collage sheets to thin cardboard (cereal box) – I use spray glue for fast action
  • Punch holes in the corners of your images, you can skip the two bottom corners of the picture you want to be on the bottom of the Bell Pull.
  • Assemble the Bell Pull with string and beads
  • (Alternative: thread some pretty ribbon through the holes and tie a nice bow on top)
  • Hang, and TA-DAH: a lovely Vintage Easter Bell Pull 🙂

1907 Joyeuses Paques – DIY Easter Bell Pull

The rich Victorians used Bell Pulls, to summon their maids, butlers and other servants. They could be connected from room to room, so when pulled, say in a bed room, a bell would ring in the servants quarters, alerting the maid to which room she was needed.

My grandmother used to make embroidered Bell Pulls for decorating tall narrow wall spaces, although the bells were then mostly for decoration, and we kids loved to pull it for fun.

I decided to make my Easter paper version, with a set of  delightful French Easter Children:

My Easter Bell Pull is still missing the actual bell, and maybe a tassel at the bottom, but you can of course embellish yours in any way you want 🙂 This is such an easy project, it will take you only minutes to assemble, once the images are cut out! 😀 And the idea can be applied to all sorts of related images, like postcards from a set or vintage family pictures. 

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Print out and glue the 3 collage sheets to thin cardboard (cereal box) – I use spray glue for fast action
  • Punch holes in the corners of your images, you can skip the two bottom corners of the picture you want to be on the bottom of the Bell Pull.
  • Thread some pretty ribbon through the holes and tie a nice bow on top.
  • Hang, and TA-DAH: a lovely Victorian Inspired French Easter Bell Pull 🙂

1912 French Chicks – DIY Easter Hangers

Here is a collage sheet with adorable French Chicks I have prepared for Easter:

I glued the collage sheet to thin cardboard (cereal box) before I cut out the individual cards, inked the edges and attached a little wire with some pearls. A super easy and quick project, resulting in cute little Easter hangers that you can use anywhere!
