DIY Holiday Jingle Bell Wreath
I don't know about you guys, but I'm a big fan of Sweet Paul Magazine. It's filled with lots of inventive DIY projects and delicious recipes that make me drool a little bit. So today I wanted to share an easy, festive project from the special Kid's Issue that just came out. I've read it myself, and sure enough, it's filled with all of the same wonderful articles that Sweet Paul usually offers, but with a youthful spin catered to young hands. Download the full Sweet Paul Magazine Kids Issue for iPad here or the PDF for all other devices here.
So without further adieu, here are Sweet Paul's instructions for the project:
Jingle Bell Wreath
This one takes a little time, but once you’re done you have an heirloom wreath for years. It can also be used as a musical instrument.
You will need:
- metal wire wreath form
- jingle bells, I used around 125
- thin silver florist wire
- wire cutter
1. Fasten your wire to the wreath.
2. Slide 2 bells on your wire and fasten to the wreath. Work yourself all the way around. Make sure the bells are tight next to each other.
3. Tie with a ribbon and hang.
Wasn't that easy? I just love the sound of jingling bells....
