Very cute, right? Well, a trip to Wal-mart, some spray paint and glue and I have my own!
What you need:
Package of jingle bells, around $2.50
Form to adhere to (I used a 4 1/2 inch glass plate)
The package that I got had both silver and gold bells and since I wanted three colors, one being silver, I divided them into three piles with one being all silver. Makes sense, right?
Took the other two outside and spray painted.
Note to self....... In the future use 2 pieces of newspaper and move a little further apart. Had to re-paint some of the red ones.
Here they are all pretty and ready to be attached. Please excuse the candles used, my candle holder will be getting the pretty white new candle it deserves. And oh, please excuse the craft table mess too.......
I orginally planned to trace the candle and cut a cardboard or felt form but remembered that I had a glass holder in the cabinet. I would think either of those would work as well. Picked a color and started gluing. Lucky for me it ended up being almost a perfect fit because I did not even think about measuring it out.
And again with a sad candle:
I plan on picking more bells up after Christmas and maybe create a bigger one using a plate from the dollar store.
Thanks for stopping by!
