Day 12: Jingle Bell Wreath Ornament

I actually got these kits from Oriental Trading last Christmas, but they were to small for Henrik, then two, to handle. So we did it this year! If you are ever looking for cute, affordable crafts, they often have great deals on simple kits for kids to do. And they come with instructions! Even if you don't go to Oriental Trading to order these, you could easily do them at home! 

Here's What You'll Need:
Jingle Bells (even getting larger sized ones would work for a 2 year old) or Beads or buttons
Pipe Cleaner

Step One:
Lay out all of your materials. Give your toddler the pipe cleaner and have them string the bells or beads on the cleaner. 


Step Two: 
Once all the bells, beads or buttons are on, make a circle with the pipe cleaner and wrap it around itself a few times so it is sealed. 

Step Three:
Tie a ribbon around the wreath, to act as the hook for the ornament. 

Step Four:
This package came with little red ribbons to glue on there, but you could easily add your own ribbon or other embellishment to the wreath for that extra pizazz. 

Once it's complete, hang it on your tree! Those gold colors pop right out at you against the evergreen!
