Crafty Idea: Christmas Tree Bell Ornament

Here is a fun ornament that would be an easy one for anyone to make this season. We added some sparkling trim for a bit of holiday glamour!


We've created a template for this project that you can download HERE.

Supplies
  • Patterned Christmas Papers
  • Adhesive gems, or gem ribbon
  • 1 large craft bell approx. 1"
  • 12" of gold colored cord
  • Tacky Glue
  • Scissors


Directions
  1. You can choose to print the template onto cardstock and trace the cut out shapes onto your patterned paper. Or, you could trim your patterned paper to fit your printer and print directly onto it - eliminating a step.
  2. For each section, fold and crease the tab and roll the shape into a cone. Secure the tab inside the cone with tacky Glue. Let dry completely.
  3. Loop the gold cord through the top of the bell and knot it together. Pull the loop-end of the cord up through each paper cone beginning with the largest and ending with the smallest.
  4. Use a small amount of tacky glue to secure each paper cone to the other.
  5. Trim the tree with gems.
