Christmas is a wonderful time of the year, as the song says. I look forward to this time of year every single year. I love everything to do with the holiday. I also love sharing fun experiences and memories with my kids to celebrate Christmas. This year, we've been on an ornament-making kick, which includes this project, jingling silver bells.
I got the idea for this project from the classic Christmas song "Silver Bells." These jingling silver bells really ring, and are made from recycled egg cartons. This was one of my favorite recycled craft projects to date!
Christmas Craft for Kids
You need just a few things to make your silver bells:
- Egg cartons
- Chenille stems
- Jingle bells
- Silver paint
Poke a hole in the very center of the egg carton.
Paint the egg cups silver on the inside and out. Let the paint dry.
Tie a bow around the top of the egg cup bell and you're done!
The kids were so pleased at how easy this project was, yet how adorable it looks when finished. They spent most of their day ringing the bells at one another, which made for a festive-sounding afternoon.
