Jingle Bells Mini Wreath Ornament


Hey y'all! It's Christmas in July and time to get a jump start on Christmas and avoid the rush and stress by starting your Christmas crafts right now! Plan ahead with making handcrafted ornaments to decorate a tree or give as gifts!  And I'm keeping it real simple with a project that looks impressive but super easy to make with just a few items - A Jingle Bells Mini Wreath Ornament!

Thanks so much for your support!

To make this ornament you only need: 
  • Jingle bells - 
  • Chenille pipe cleaners
  • Ribbon and trim
Begin by threading the pipe cleaner through the top hole of the bell, leaving 1.5" on one end to twist when finish.  Fold end down to prevent bells from falling off. Continue adding bells and sliding them together as tight as possible.
One 12" pipe cleaner will hold 28 - 20mm or .75" jingle bells .  .  .
leaving enough pipe cleaner to twist close into a circle.

Next, make a bow with 2" loops - I used my Bowdabra and bow wire to make my bow .  .  . 
and used the bow wire to make a loop for hanging! But you can use twine or thin ribbon to make a loop, too! See, quick and easy! Have fun making lots for tree trimming, embellishing gifts and holiday decorating!
I'm sharing this ornament tutorial as part of the Creative Crafter's Group Craft Challenge on Facebook hosted by Janet @Try It, Like It, Create It, where we are challenged to create  themed projects on the 15th of each month.

  2. Those are so cute! We have lots of mini bells left over from some holiday crafts; we'll have to remember these when we're in a crafting mood. Pinned.
