No really the safe way! As you know I sale items online that require rusty bells. I went to my local favorite craft store and could not find what I wanted. So I purchased a bag on bells and the kids and me set out to rust our own!

The bells we purchased were in the Christmas section, any cheap bell will do fine.
We decided to throw in some safety pins to see what would happen to them as well.
Remember to unpin them first.
You are going to need some bleach, store brand will work fine. We used the regular kind. Not the concentrated.
You are going to place your bells in a mason jar or old pickle jar. The more bells you rust the bigger the jar!
You are going to cover you bells with the bleach. About an inch over the bells. This is a step that parents might want to help with. (wear old clothes)
Let them sit for 24 hours. Outside if you can.
After the 24 hours is over you will see this!
They will look a little brown and some rust but not enough just yet.
We need more!
