Make a jingle bell tree….

I bought some gold jingle bells on clearance at the end of last season. I wasn’t thrilled about the color, but they were so cheap, I knew I couldn’t pass them up.
 I had some white spray paint and some Krylon Glitterblast to try.
 I separated out all of my bells according to size.
 I hot glued them to a cardboard cone.
 I ended up doing biggest to smallest at first and then I realized I kind of liked them a bit assorted so I changed my a pattern up a little as I worked.
 After they were all glued on I took my cone outside and coated it with a few coats of white.
 I also covered some craft store cardboard snowflakes  which I sprayed later with the glitter blast color sparkling waters.
I liked it, but I did notice I had to shake the can a lot to keep it from clogging.I also sprayed my tree in clear glitterblast.
Once everything was dry, I hot glued my glittery snowflakes onto my Jingle tree.
 I think it’s cute! I would recommend buying more bells than you think you need. I had three boxes and I had to trim my cone down, otherwise I could have used 4!

    This is so cute Jenn! I’m all about some cheap dollar store jingle bells. I’ve got ’em all over my house right now. What a great (and cheap!) way to make a fun gift for someone.

    What a cute idea. This year my granddaughter and I decoupaged cones with christmas scrapbook paper and glitter. This is a good thing to remember for next year, as your tree is quite striking.
