Finishing
STEP 1: Tie one end of the ribbon into a bow and trim the long end to match the other tail end's length. Stick the red balled pin through the center and set it aside. You are going to use this to secure the other piece of the ribbon to the bell.

STEP 2: Stick the other pin through one end of the ribbon and stick it part way, into the bell at the narrowest part, wrap the ribbon around the bell to meet the pinned end, make sure the ends cross over, while holding the long end over the pinned end, stick the pin of the bow through both layers right next to the other pin, stick it all the way in. Trim the long end of the ribbon, close to the bow. Pull the other pin back out, the one that is NOT red.

STEP 3: Attach the rest of the ribbon to the top of the bell to be the hanger. Do it how ever you want to. I used my crochet hook to pass both ends through opposite stitches at the top, tied a knot, trimmed the ends then pulled up the loop to secure it.
