After our jingle bell sorting activity, we had lots of fun making this simple jingle bell wreath ornament!  This is a SUPER easy craft, but it does take some fine motor control to slide the pipe cleaners through the top of the bell.

 

Here’s what you’ll need:  jingle bells, pipecleaners (both of which we received compliments of CraftProjectIdeas.com), and ribbon (optional).

One of my little helpers apparently wanted their hand in the photo of materials.  :)

1.  Take a pipe cleaner and slide it through the very top of the bell and pull down until there is about an inch and a half left at the bottom.

2.  Give to your child and let him/her get started sliding the bells onto the pipe cleaner.  Alternate colors, if you wish.

 3.  Stop adding bells once you have 1 1/2 inches of bare pipe cleaner on each end.

4.  Bend the pip cleaner and make a circle.  Secure by twisting the pipe cleaner several times.

5.  Use ribbon (or another pipe cleaner like we did) to add a hanger as well as a ribbon.

 Hang on the tree and admire your work!  Not only does it look great, it sounds beautiful if the tree ever gets bumped!  :)
