DIY Rusty Looking Christmas bell, meagen mackenzie, okotoks realtor, homes for sale in okotoks

It's the most wonderful time of the year - Christmas. And I've been busy decorating my house with Christmas decor.


My favourite holiday decor style is traditional and primitive. It reminds me of Christmas' past; a simpler time when people used what they had to enjoy the season. It's a good reminder for me that you don't need fancy things to enjoy the simple things in life.


You often see rusted out jingle bells, or Christmas bells with this primitive look. 


I've seen the rusted bells in stores, but they are expensive; especially when you need a lot of them.


So this week, I'm getting the look for almost no money. I purchased a few packages of jingle bells from my local dollar store, bought a can of spray primer and a can of spray paint from Home Depot and that's it...I've now got a huge assortment of rusty looking Christmas bells that I can incorporate in my holiday decor.


And you too can get this look with a few simple steps. I hope you enjoy this project. If you decide to give it a try, be sure to leave a comment below so I know how it worked for you.


Happy Holidays!
