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 πŸ™‚

  1. What a delightful project! I bet your sister is over the moon with it. Thank you so much for the beautiful images, not just today, but every day.

    1. Thank you Lululiz πŸ™‚ She loved the Bell Pull, and all the other stuff I left for her yesterday. I will be posting a couple more of the projects I made for her, later today and tomorrow πŸ™‚ Thank you also for the lovely comment about my work in general, I am very pleased to hear that you are enjoying my whimsies πŸ™‚ I wish you a Happy Easter! xoxoxo

      1. Hehehe! I really hope you try this project, it is as simple as they get especially if you hang it with ribbon πŸ˜‰ The wire and beads take a little more fiddling, but makes a cute result too πŸ˜‰ I was at my sister’s house when I uploaded these yesterday, and she does not have the wifi-power I’m used to, so uploading was a lot slower. I think you first checked almost immediately after the post was released, and I was in the middle of uploading… lol I wish you a Happy Easter πŸ™‚ xoxoxo

    1. Thank you Dear πŸ™‚ I sometimes feel almost like “cheating” for simply presenting fabulous vintage art with my twist… but I hope the eye for finding good pieces and the little ideas I apply can count for something too…lol Have a lovely Easter! xoxoxo

  2. Inspired by you I made a project like this (but using your ribbon method) with some images from the French chicks and some from this collection. It makes me so happy to look at it. I had to make it fairly small, though, to fit the space where I could hang it. Can I ask what size of rectangles you used for your sister’s bell pull? I love the way it looks oh her wall.

    1. Dear Carol πŸ™‚ I am so happy to hear that you were able to use some of my images πŸ™‚ Both Bell Pulls I have shown were made printing the collage sheets in A4-size so each image is slightly smaller than a half A4 page (approx. 14x20cm). You can of course print them half the size too, with two sheets (4 images) per page, but I planned my Bell Pulls to be rather large decorations, and then I have used lots of the little Hangers everywhere else where space is more limited. πŸ™‚ Happy Easter to you! xoxoxo
