Jingle bells, jingle bells… jingle all the way…

I have Christmas on my mind and it’s here to stay….

I have started Christmas crafting, the decorating will have to wait but the crafting has been seriously started.

First project was a homemade Christmas ornament: a jingle bells heart.

Because:

I Christmas!

 

Want to make one too?

Sure you do, these are easy, fun and quick to make.

First you will need teeny tiny jinglebells. I got them in a dollar store kind of shop. I am sure you will be able to hunt some down where you live too. One of those jars is enough for one heart (but more is better).

Then you will need some tough wire to create the heart shape and a roll of thin silver thread/wire to wrap with. For my first heart I used an old wire clothes hanger, but that was kind of heavy duty and a lot of work to bend in the heart shape. For my second and third heart I used a softer but still very sturdy wire from the hardware store.

Get a good length of  the thin wire and attach it to the heart. Thread clusters of five bells and wrap them around the wire. Squish them together and secure with the wire. Continue like this until very full. When you squish them and pull the bells tightly together wrap a bell or too in a noose, this will secure the little bunches to stay put. 

That’s it. 

Told you this was easy. You can do it while watching TV. 

Maybe while you watch your favorite Christmas movie. What is your favorite Christmas movie?

Mine is Love Actually btw.

This was so fun, and I finished my first heart so quickly that I made another one….

And then another one with a little variation. 

This time I combined the jingle bells with some faux pearls and beads. 

Oh la, la, glamorous much….

  1. Cute!
    Love this. I may have to consider making a couple of these with my Littles… this will be good for dexterity skills, attention and FUN!

  2. I LOVE your heart bells Marianne – so pretty! I’m definitely pinning these. Thanks for the great tutorial.

  3. I do believe everything looks prettier in the Netherlands. Even your bells!!! I totally love this sans pearls and love it with pearls. Thank you for posting!!! I thought of you as I got my Advent candles ready. This year I’m using glass narrow filled with vanilla scented candle wax for my four candles. They even have a rim of gold paint at the top! I saved a fancy Christ Candle and added a small angel with a banner. Fine sharpies allow fine wring Jesis is born!Alleluia! I bought a new advent book so I’m covering it in white and I spray painted an old colored paper doily for the cover. Preparing my heart for Christmas!!

  4. Hardstikke leuk. Ga ik ook maken. Doei, Ans

  5. Lijkt me leuk om te maken, maar……bij Action kosten ze bijna niks. Niet echt creatief moet ik toegeven.
    Prettige 1e Advent
