How to make a beautiful jingle bell ornament!

Here’s a simple Christmas ornament that can be made with just a few materials!

Supplies:

  • Medium-sized silver jingle bells (3)
  • Jute twine
  • Ribbon scraps
  • Scissors

Here’s what the jingle bells look like, along with a US quarter coin so you can see the size better. I found these at one of the big-box craft stores.

Step One: Cut out a long length of jute twine and tie a knot at one end. Thread it through the jingle bell. Repeat for the other two jingle bells.

Step Two: Hold up all the jingle bells by the twine and decide how you want them to look when hanging.

  • How long do you want them to be?
  • Do you want them to be different lengths or the same?

Step Three: Gather the three twine strings — in the position you want them (from Step Two) — and knot them together as shown below.
