Make your own silver bell ornaments to hang from the Christmas tree.

What You'll Need:

Cardboard egg carton

Scissors

Colored string

Pea-sized wooden beads

Needle

Silver paint

Paintbrush

Ribbon

Cut a single egg carton cup for each bell. String a bead on a string, and

secure it with a knot.

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 three bells, tie them to a longer string. Paint the bells silver.

Tie a ribbon in a bow around the long string. Hang the ornament on your Christmas tree, and gather the family around to sing "Jingle Bells."

Next, create a snowman without having to go out into the cold. Read our article on making a stringy snowperson sculpture!
