This is such a cute and easy-to-make Christmas bell craft. All you need are a few simple materials to make this fun Christmas Craft for kids! Children from toddler, preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten age will have fun making these Bell Crafts.
Christmas Bell Craft
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!
You need just a few things to make your silver bells:
- Egg cartons
- Chenille stems
- Jingle bells
- Silver paint
Christmas bells craft
Cut off all of the egg carton cup that doesn’t make a complete circle. Our egg cartons actually have a line marking this point, which made it much easier to cut. At any rate, you want the egg cups to look like little bells.
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.
Christmas Craft for Kids
When the paint is dry, cut a 4-inch long piece of chenille stem. Thread the stem through the top of the jingle bell and up through the hole in the egg carton. This will hold the bell in place. Tie the ends of the chenille stem together to create a loop that you can use to ring the bell or hang it from the Christmas tree.
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.
