What you need to make a jingle bells Christmas wreath

Here’s what you need for a 20-cm / 8-in wreath:

  • 42 to 46 3.5 cm / 1 3/8 in jingle bells in gold or another colour (combination) of your choice. I used only shiny and matte gold jingle bell ornaments. Since Jingle bells are available in an amazing collection of shades, you can easily adapt this holiday wreath technique to any colour scheme and make it part of your Christmas home décor. Use metal bells if you want the wreath to jingle and clink.
  • 85 cm / 33.5 in sturdy wire. I used round 16-gauge half hard stainless-steel craft wire. This type of wire can be manipulated into a round shape and will keep its form whereas softer wires (so-called dead soft wires, e.g. aluminium wire) won’t hold their shape.
  • a red piece of 1.5 cm / 0.6 cm ribbon for hanging the wreath. As the wreath is has a little weight to it, select a sturdy ribbon. Adjust the length of the ribbon according to your needs.
  • a 4 cm / 1.6 in red-and-white chequered ribbon to tie a bow
  • wire cutter and needle nose pliers

Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Difficulty easy

Materials

  • 42 – 46 3.5 cm (1 3/8 in) jingle bell ornaments
  • 85 cm (33.5 in) sturdy wire
  • red ribbon (1.5 cm / 0.6 in wide)
  • red-and-white chequered ribbon (4 cm / 1.6 in wide)

Tools

  • wire cutter
  • needle nose pliers

Instructions

  1. Thread the jingle bells. Using needle nose pliers, bend a small loop in one end of the wire. Then thread the wire through the top half-circle eyelets of the jingle bell ornaments. We alternated between pairs of shiny and matte bells. Once all bells are added, slide the flat end of the wire through the looped end and use the pliers to close the wreath. Trim the wire if necessary. Bend with your hands into a round shape.
  2. Add a ribbon and bow. Add a piece of ribbon for hanging the wreath and tie a large fluffy bow around at the base of the hanging ribbon.
