DIY jingle bell bracelet

I love jingle bells at Christmas! When I was in grade school I actually got in trouble for putting them on my shoestrings. Not that I was a fidgety child or anything! {wink} So when I saw these beautiful red jingle bells at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores I had to pick up a bag and make myself a bracelet.

Of course little ones ran off with it after I jingled them into giggles. They eventually gave it back and I plan on wearing it on Christmas Eve and Christmas day. (It’s a great way to make them think Santa’s on the roof! His reindeer always have bells on their reins, right!) 

I thought it also a great idea for kiddos to make as Christmas gifts for moms or moms to make as gifts for their little girls. Here’s how!

You’ll need a few supplies: jingle bells, thin elastic and ribbon.

Measure or estimate wrist size and then thread your bells. I alternated large, medium and small.

Next cut equal lengths of various coordinating ribbon and tie them on to fill in the spaces. It’s that easy!

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake and create!
