Teacher gifts - Personalized Bell Ornaments

Between the two kids still in school, I needed fifteen teacher/helper gifts. FIFTEEN!? Time to figure out a fast sewing project. Ornaments are always a good choice.
Here are the results from the first round of sewing. I pulled out all of my Christmas/Winter fabric scraps and grouped them. I let the kids choose which combo best suited each teacher. Then, they wrote a personalized message on the backing of each bell.
I want the kids to be part of the gift giving process, especially for people who they know better than I do, and this was a great way to make it personal and special for each recipient.

To make these, I reduced the size of the bell, and used the same process as my Bell Door Hanger. Five down, ten to go.The template for both bells can be found here.


  1. What an excellent and thoughtful idea! The lucky recipients will love these.

  2. Debora,

    Where can I get a copy of the bell?

    1. Great question. The post has been updated at the end to include a link to the template. Thank you so much for asking. Hope you have fun making these.

  3. OMG! I made 5 little bells this morning for teacher gifts and a bigger one for the family to sign at Christmas! Thanks so much for the great idea and inspiration!


Thank you. I really appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment.
