How to make a beautiful jingle bell ornament!
Here’s a simple Christmas ornament that can be made with just a few materials!
- Medium-sized silver jingle bells (3)
- Jute twine
- Ribbon scraps
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.
The jute twine gives a rustic vibe to this ornament!
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.
Step Four: Cut ribbon scraps to thread through each jingle bell.
I used white chiffon ribbon:
Step Five: Tie each scrap into a knot.
Step Six: Cut the ends of each scrap so they are all the same size.
Step Seven: Tie a few ribbon scraps around the twine knot. Trim the ends of the ribbon.
And that’s it!
Now you’re ready to hang your beautiful jingle bell ornament!
