Jingle Bell Wreath Ornaments How To
This is the first year we acquired an Xmas Tree. Finally had space for it in the apartment!
Have Xmas tree. No ornaments. Quickly corrected with this Jingle Bell Ornament tutorial from SatoriDesignForLiving.

I generally found that the 6mm bells needed ~75x 6mm bells per wreath (~40x 9mm bells, ~30x 12mm bells). It's also handy to start with some cord (I used hemp cord), decently sturdy wire that can hold a wreath shape under the weight of the bells (I used 22gauge), some pliers, wire cutters, and a bit of festive ribbon.

  1. Supplies: Pliers, wire cutters, 22ga wire, hemp cord, jingle bells

  19. I like to cut ~5in of decorative ribbon, thread it through the hemp loop/knot (the ugly side), and tie a bow as a final touch.
