Finally a bells ornament, right? No? Ok…well you get one anyway.
I’ve always had a fascination for bells around Christmas time. I think it’s the sound of bells that ignites the Christmas Spirit so it’s a shame it took me this long to come up with something for the bells.
Warning: I didn’t have a tripod while taking these pictures and the low light recorded every shake. I apologize that they are more than a bit blurry.
Collect your supplies.
- 8 medium sized bells
- 1 thin, sturdy twig
- Ribbon or holiday bow
- Hot Glue/Gun
Thread the bells onto the twig, leaving some of the twig exposed at the bottom.
Using hot glue to secure the bottom bell to the twig.
Cut off the excess twig at the bottom.
Choose a holiday bow in which to top your bell ornament.
Wrap the adhesive strip from the bow around the twig at the top of the ornament. You may need to cut the adhesive to make it fit.
(sorry so blurry) Must. Find. Tripod. Now.
Using scissors, trim the ribbon to show the ornament or wrap the pieces around the bells.
Attach another piece of ribbon on the top of the ornament as a hanger. I used a small piece of white ribbon and secured it with hot glue.
