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
- White sheer organza ribbon
- Ribbon scraps in ivory and white
- Scissors (I used these scissors from Fiskars. I love them for small craft projects.)
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.
First, cut out a long length of jute twine and tie a knot at one end. Next, thread it through the jingle bell. Then repeat for the other two jingle bells.
The jute twine gives a rustic vibe to this ornament!
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?
Next, gather the three twine strings — in the position you want them (from Step Two) — and knot them together as shown below.
Cut ribbon scraps to thread through each jingle bell.
I used white sheer organza ribbon:
Tie each scrap into a knot.
After you tie the knots, cut the ends of each scrap so they are all the same size.
Finally, tie a few ribbon scraps around the twine knot. Then trim the ends of the ribbon.
And that’s it!
Now you’re ready to hang your beautiful jingle bell ornament!
This jingle bell ornament works is perfect for our farmhouse Christmas decor!
But wait, there’s more!
