Trim your tree with these festive Jingle Bells Christmas Ornaments! Make them with your kids as an Advent activity or sell them at a holiday craft fair in your area. This Christmas ornament craft is easy for anyone to make.
Say hello to the easiest Christmas craft you’ll see this year. Okay. Maybe it’s not the easiest but it easy and fast so you can’t go wrong with that combination.
These jingle bells Christmas ornaments were inspired by a friend of my sisters. She gave something similar to my sister for Christmas years back when we were in high school and ever since then I’ve wanted to make them.
It’s only taken me 20+ years but better late than never! Let’s get to it!
DIY JINGLE BELLS CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT
- Large Bells
- Silver Pipe Cleaners
- Hot Glue Gun
The steps are super simple and you can bang out a bunch of these in no time.
Step One: Bend your pipe cleaner in half and twist to make a loop. This is how you’ll hang it on your tree.
Step Two: Thread one end of the pipe cleaner through the little loop on the bell, fold end over and twist to secure. Snip the other end of the pipe cleaner so it’s shorter and add a second bell on the other end of the pipe cleaner. Twist the end of the pipe cleaner to secure.
Step Three: Take a second pipe cleaner and add a bell to it just like you did in step 2.
Step Four and Five: Place the third bell with the others so that it hangs the lowest. Take the opposite end of that pipe cleaner and wrap it around the first pipe cleaner right under the loop.
Once you are done, finish it off with a bow. I didn’t tie a bow because I’m not that great at it. Instead I took a piece of ribbon and folded it over on each end to look like a bow.
I secured it by wrapping a small piece of pipe cleaner around the middle of it.
I then hot glued it onto the jingle bells Christmas ornament right under the loop and called it done. So simple and so cute!
