I am not ready for a chorus of Jingle Bells in June, but I’m o.k. with making a pair of these DIY Jingle Bell Cones. And they are summer easy, too – just look at the directions below. TWO STEPS! Yep, you barely need the tutorial to make these Jingle Bell Cones. Jingle bells are sold in lots of colors, so the hardest part might be deciding the colors you’d like to use. If you prefer a rustic style, look for jingle bells with a rusty finish – I’d love to see how those would look on these Jingle Bell Cones.
To make Jingle Bell Cones, you’ll need:
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 9” x 4” and 6” x 3” cones
- Jingle bells:
- I used silver & red, but you can choose your favorite colors
- You’ll need about 150 for the 9” cone
- My jingle bells ranged in sizes from 1/4″ – 3/4″
- The jingle bells on top of each cone are 30mm.
- Low-temp glue gun
To make Jingle Bell Cones:
1. Glue a row of larger jingle bells around the bottom of a cone. Repeat, and continue adding rows till the cone is covered. Mix in a few contrasting jingle bells as you go. Fill in any holes and gaps with smaller jingle bells.
2. Glue a 30mm jingle bell to the top.
Patty Schaffer topped her Paper Loop Christmas Cone with one of the rusty jingle bells I mentioned. How do you think a Jingle Bell Cone would look covered in jingle bells with a rusty finish? I think it would need an ornament of some sort for a dash of color – any suggestions?
Thanks for stopping in for this summer’s first Tinsel Tuesday.
