Silver Bell Christmas Ornament, Eco Friendly Holiday Decor, Recycled Aluminum Xmas Tree Decoration
Ding Dong Merrily on High!
This Aluminum Bell Christmas Ornament is handmade of recycled sheet metal, upcycled repurposed from a household lamp, for a merry Yuletide season!
We cut the primitive folk art shapes for all our metalwork decorations, and I tumble them for shine and strength and attach our hand formed wire hanger.
The simple, old fashioned style reminds me of holidays long ago, when I decorated our family Christmas tree with my own artistic creations - made by hand from salvaged soda pop cans - while I sang (no doubt off key but with festive enthusiasm) "Silver Bells ... It's Christmas time in the city ..."
The silver star is bright and shiny on the front, so it reflects nearby colors beautifully. The back side has a brushed matte finish. Because the aluminum is recycled, you may see a slight ding, scratch or other small surface blemish; these marks serve to establish the ornament's credentials as ecofriendly!
Because each bell is individually handcrafted of reclaimed industrial materials, no two will be identical. Yours will closely resemble the example shown in these photos, but will also be a unique holiday keepsake.
The silver metal bell is approximately 3 inches long and 2 3/4 inches across at its widest point (about 7.5cm x 7cm). The hanger adds another inch or so to the overall length of the ornament.
