Repurposed Vintage Christmas Bells

These are by far my favorite repurposed Christmas ornament to own and to make!

Vintage jello mold Christmas bells

Several years ago after finding a bunch of vintage jello molds at a garage sale, I searched the internet for ideas. 

I combined a few of the ideas I found and added a few touches of my own. 

These beauties have keys as the dinger that make a beautiful Christmas sound. 

While I've used vintage jello molds in repurposed projects before, I hadn't tried Christmas bells yet. You can see them here...

Apparently they were a hit because I sold them all!

This year while on a visit to NYC I happened upon a box of vintage molds at the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market. 

This place runs most of the year and those guys out there were freezing! 

This flea market is my old stomping ground for our episode of HGTV's Flea Market Flip, you can read all about that here.

The minute I got home I whipped up a new batch of bells and this time I will be sure to save a few for myself!

They make great gifts and the sound they make when they ring is so pretty!
