I love making new ornaments for my Christmas tree each year and seeing other’s ideas for DIY ornaments as well, which is why I was SO excited to be asked to join 11 other bloggers to share 12 days of Christmas! We’ll each be sharing 12 handmade ornaments (starting with this DIY Jingle Bell ornament!) for a grand total of 144 DIY ornament ideas for your inspiration! How awesome is that?
My first ornament is a super easy one-even the kids can make this! Here’s what you’ll need:
- 16 large bells
- 2 pieces of twine, cut 10″ long
- 6″ piece of ribbon of your choice
First, tie your two pieces of twine in the middle so you have a knot with four strings branching from it.
Thread four bells on each of the four strands of twine.
Gather the ends of the twine in your hands and tie a knot to secure the bells. Tie another knot 3″ away from the first to form your hanging loop.
Tie a bow with your ribbon over the lower knot and you’re all finished!
Wasn’t that easy? Now-hop over and check out the other 11 ornaments being shared today and be sure to stop back every day for the next eleven days to see more ideas! (and by the way a big shout out to Micheals for gifting each of us a little gift card to help offset our supplies for this series-you can find Michaels on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest for more crafting ideas!)
