Jingle Bell Wreath

What you need:
• 16-gauge wire
• 24- gauge wire
• Jingle bells
• Needle-nose pliers
• Ribbon

What you do:
• Form 16-gauge wire into a circle.
• Make a closed loop at one end with needle-nose pliers.
• Thread jingle bells onto the open end in any size and color combination.
• When the wire is full, join its ends by twisting the unlooped end into a hook, and fasten it onto the closed loop.
 • Tie a piece of ribbon into a bow; secure it to the bottom of the wreath with 24-gauge wire.

Jingle Bells

What you need:
•  Egg-carton
• Scissors
•  Paint
•  Bells
•  Yarn
• Embroidery needle
• Glitter

What you do:
• Cut the cone-shape pieces that separate the eggs out of a cardboard carton (one egg carton will produce five bells).
• Paint each divider, using acrylic or poster paint. Let dry.
• Apply glue along the edge of the divider, all over the outside, or wherever you like, and sprinkle with glitter.
• Thread an embroidery needle with yarn, poke a hole through a bell’s crown, and pull yarn through partway.
• For a clapper, slip a jingle bell onto the end of the yarn; tie a knot above the jingle bell. Tie several bells around a doorknob, staggering the lengths of the yarn.
