I love jingle bells, they are so cute. I try to hold back, but when I see the lovely ones they have in Paperchase each Christmas, I just cannot resist them, but I thought it’s about time I made something with them.
So, I have made a jingle bell phone charm using leads I found in HobbyCraft and jump rings that I have had for ages.
It only took a couple of minutes to make but there’s a bit of a knack to opening and closing jump rings, I’m not quite there yet, but I am getting better with practice.
I’ve also made a festive key ring, again using bells I got from Paperchase last year, jump rings and a blank key ring. Simples!
These are going in my Many Pocketed Advent Calendar, I just hope the ringing doesn’t drive the recipient mad!
