Tuesday Tutorial: Jingle Bell Wreath

Today I'm going to show you a super easy project for Christmastime. All you need is wire (I used 14ga copper wire), jingle bells in various sizes and colors, tulle, miniature shatterproof bulbs and something round to shape the wire around {oh, and wire cutters}.

Simply wrap your wire around the jar, overlapping about halfway. Turn over the end of one side of the wire so that all of your jingles don't fall off. Then add the bells and bulbs all the way around until you're happy with how it looks. Wrap the ends of the wire around each other and make a loop {it's okay if it doesn't look good, the tulle will cover it}. Add tulle and cut it to the desired length. Using about 4 pieces of tulle, create a loop to hang the wreath. That's it! Scroll down to see our process...

As you can see, she's really into it!

Little E liked it too...

For a second and then he wanted to make a crown.

Big E's finished wreath.

And this is mine, hanging in my entryway.

This is a simple project that's fairly inexpensive if you shop after-Christmas sales.
