The inventor developed the diversified assembly of Christmas bell decoration based on his experience and technology in relative industry. The main aspect of the present invention is the configuration of a two-part Christmas bell decoration, which comprised of a cluster of bells with semicircle shape and ornaments with another corresponding semicircle shape. Different kinds of Christmas bell decorations are obtained due to different shape of the ornaments or different sequence arrangement of the bell and the ornaments. Hence, the Christmas bell decorations can fit the need of the consumer market due to its diversified shapes.

Another aspect of the present invention is the assembling method between the ornaments and the cluster of bells. In assembling the aforementioned two parts, easy method such as bard or screw threads matching with screw cap is used. Hence, in addition to obtain diversification in shape, manufacturing cost is also reduced to meet the need of industry application.
