Cozy Christmas Bell Decor: Decorative Bells & More

This holiday season, make your home sparkle with the best Christmas bell decor! These decorations will take you right back to the past and make your whole home feel like Santa’s Workshop!

I absolutely love decorating for Christmas! It’s the coziest time of year for sure and there are so many different ways to match your decor to your personal style. Actually, I think these Christmas bell decorations are some of the best. They have an iconic look that immediately catches the eye and some even actually ring!

Decorating for Christmas is one of my favorite things to do. I love creating new ways to make my home feel festive and magical. But sometimes, choosing a decorating style can be a bit of a dilemma. Should I go for a vintage look or keep it traditional? Should I add a bit of glitz or stick to classic holiday colors? Ultimately, mixing a few different styles is the best approach, or at least that is how I approached Christmas decorating last year. That way, you can create a look that is uniquely your own. And it ensures your home will be decked out in all the Christmas cheer!

Christmas Bell Decoration Ideas

There are so many different types of Christmas bell decor out there! These are some of my favorites that would look great in any home. The good news is that most of these are available on Amazon, so you can get free shipping with Prime with plenty of time to deliver before the holidays!

Gold Bells

One great way to add a little warmth and shine is to add gold bell ornaments to your tree. They have a warm, traditional look and pair really well with rich greens, reds, cream, and other gold decorations like these gold foil ornaments I made last year.

Giant Metal Christmas Bells

I fell in love with the giant Christmas bells and knew instantly that I would use them in my family room. In addition, I used some of the traditional red and white and lots of plaid in this room.

I also decorated the red and white tree with galvanized houses and lots of bells and pinecones. I made this fun “Merry Christmas” banner draping down the tree’s front. You can see the detailed post on how to make this banner and decorate your tree here. I enjoy adding fun signs that make us feel like we are in the Christmas spirit

Rustic Cow Bells

These rustic-looking cow bells are so evocative, don’t you think? They have a really rich look and seem like they’re straight out of an old barn in Latvia or something! The best part is that they can be used as indoor Christmas decorations in any room of your house. 

Hang them from the wall for a seasonal garland or arrange them artfully on a table with some fresh greenery and candles. You can even buy small ones to hang on your Christmas tree!

These smaller, triangular ornaments have a similar look and would add so much charm to your holiday display! They look like handmade pieces, too. They’re so pretty that I’d gladly keep them up until the new year.

Rusty Metal Christmas Bell Ornaments

Although “rusty” is not always the best descriptor for home decor, these bells are just precious! There is some assembly required as you add the ribbons and jute thread, but that adds to the handmade, homespun look.

These primitive style ornaments would be the best Christmas tree decorations for someone who loves a really traditional, natural look. They’d also look lovely hanging from an evergreen garland or off of the knobs in your kitchen.

Wooden Jingle Bells

I recently discovered these adorable wooden jingle bells. Are they not the cutest? I am in love with these new bells and they were a bargain.

Silver Jingle Bells

I love these shiny jingle bells! Each silver jingle bell ornament has little stars to tie in with the holiday theme. They’d look just as great on a tree as on a wreath. You can even hang them down from your mantel for extra shine! You can often find things like this at Hobby Lobby or Michael’s, so check to see if you can find some near you.

These small silver bells are hung with red ribbon and can be used to accessorize a gift or to hang from a miniature Christmas tree!

Decorative Bell Garland

These golden bells look more like a church bell than a Jingle bell. I love how they look cascading down together. They’d be great to hang in the middle of a wreath or in front of a cupboard in the living room.

Personalized Bell Ornament

For a special gift, get one of these beautiful ornaments. Each one is customized with your name or a special message to spread holiday cheer. They’re a great heirloom quality gift that will last for decades.

Cream Colored Bells

There’s something so charming about the bell shape without the metallic finish. These cream colored bell ornaments would look lovely on a minimalist tree or hanging down from a homemade wreath.

Sleigh Bell Strap

Make your home sound like the North Pole by hanging a strap of bells to your door! Every time the door opens, the bells will ring. This is such a charming idea and will make your whole home feel like Santa Claus is about to walk through the door.

Electric Jingle Bell Christmas Lights

I absolutely love these lights! They would be adorable as a garland on their own but the fact that they light up takes them over the top! They’re a great way to illuminate a tree, add extra lighting to your staircase, or string over a buffet table or console table.

If you need some large bells to place in front of a window or hang from your mantle, these enormous bells look like amazing vintage treasures! They’re intentionally made to look warn so they look like you pulled them out of an old barn or something. They add immediate charm to any space.

Inflatable Bell Decorations

Celebrate the Christmas season inside and out with these gold-colored inflatable bells! They even light up, adding a warm glow to your yard display. With a little snow, you’d have a cozy Winter Wonderland!

More Jingle Bell Decorations

If you love Christmas bell decor, you really need to visit the Etsy app. It’s full of one of a kind items like handmade signs, homemade ornaments, jingle bell picture frames, and so much more. You can get greeting cards, t-shirts, wall signs, wreaths, and even more decorative items to match any type of style. Plus, Etsy sellers usually have small businesses, so you’ll be able to support real people just like you, instead of big companies. 

Be sure to plan ahead though! Any made-to-order items will take extra time to make and ship, so get those orders in well before the holiday shipping cutoff. This is also a great place to look for holiday gifts!

Decorating with Citrus

Oranges and tangerines add so much color to your natural Christmas decor; you can do many things with them. You can use a dehydrator and dry the slices for a garland or a wreath. You can use whole tangerines in a vase full of fresh greens. Create a Christmas tree out of tangerines and rosemary or Kale. You can even make the yummiest smelling stovetop potpourri.
