This Christmas bead project will take you through the steps needed to create your own silver bell ornaments to hang from the Christmas tree.

Using a few art supplies and a recyclable material or two, you can have your very own jingle bells to hang year after year!

What You'll Need:

Cardboard egg carton

Scissors

Colored string

Pea-size wooden beads

Needle

Silver paint

Paintbrush

Ribbon

Ask an adult to help you cut a single egg carton cup for each bell. String a bead on a string, and secure it with a knot. Ask an adult to help you use a needle to poke the free end of the string through the egg carton cup.

Knot the end of the string, making sure the bead swings freely inside the egg cup. When you have made 3 bells, tie them to a longer string. Paint the bells silver. Tie a ribbon in a bow around the long string.

Bravo! Your silver bell ornaments are ready for display.
