If someone gave me a jingle bell and asked me to come up with an ornament, this is what I would make. I know, because that is the challenge we posed among a group of bloggers.

I will post links to everyone else's creations at the bottom of this post.

Here is how I made mine. I picked a couple of branches from a tree in the common area where I live. Don't tell.

Then, I got out some embroidery floss, some red beads and some jingle bells. Ignore the moss. I ended up not using that.

The tree I got these branches come from look like this. I really want a tree like this in my back yard. I just love those leafy branches.

I picked a few and made them into circles by tying them with green florist wire.

Here is a closeup of how I tied them with wire.

Next I hung them and the jingle bells from some chicken wire on my tarp. I spray painted the circles gold and the jingle bells white.

After everything was dry, I threaded some red floss through the jingle bell and strung a red bead onto both ends of the floss.

Then I separated the floss and put on on either side of a wreath, then gathered the floss again and added another bead.

This way I could use the first bead to position the white bell in the center of the wreath and the second bead was used as decoration at the top. I tied a knot.

And that's it. A sweet little ornament ready for the tree.

Now I am anxious to see what everyone else made. Here are the links:
