Jingle Bell Garland DIY

If you are looking for an easy quick craft for make for you tree or give as a gift this DIY Christmas garland really rings the bell – haha!
I love the sound of bells. They are so nostalgic and show up in all the old timey Christmas movies like Miracle on 34th Street. Don’t worry though, the jingle jangle sound of them will not get tiring since this garland goes on your tree or wreath and it hardly jangles at all.

How to make a jingle bell garland:


Jingle Bells (I used about 90)
26 ga. Wire
Wire Cutters
Treat bag, Scrapbook paper and tag (optional)

Cut your wire so that you have three pieces, each approximately 8 feet long. Using the first wire make a loop on one end so that your jingle bells do not fall off the wire and string on 30 jingle bells onto the wire.

Move your first jingle bell to the end of the wire and twist it into place. Next measure 2″ to where the next jingle bell should be and twist the next jingle bell there. Continue until you have added all of the jingle bells to the wire. Repeat for the other two wires.

Next you will connect all three wires by gathering one end of each wire and twisting them together all the way to the other end of the wires. It may be helpful to attached the one end of the wire to a hook on the wall to hold the wire while you twist.

Make loops on each end for hanging. Be sure to twist and trim off any wire ends that are sticking out.

If you are giving this as a gift it is fun to make a package for your garland. I am using a cellophane treat bag from the dollar store, some holiday scrapbook paper and a homemade vintage tag. Cut the scrapbook paper to the width of your bag with enough to fold over the top. Put the garland into the treat bag and staple the scrapbook paper to close the top of the bag. Staple on some tags on a string.
