I could be wrong, they don't seem particularly well written, but they look like these to me:

三 meaning 3/San/mitsu (As in Ichi san no U)

魔 meaning demon/evil/something bad

心?(This one I'm not sure about, I've seen this kanji written somewhat like the one below but it could be wrong) heart/spirit/mind

大 Big (As in Daikan)

叢 which seems to mean "dense", or "series" depending on the context..

Thanks a lot! it somehow make sense since the bell is a wind chime meant to keep the ''bad spirits'' away for the house!

I read this character as 山 = yama/mountain in slightly free style
