Christmas is nearly here! These DIY pipe cleaner Christmas tree bells are super easy and a fun last minute craft…with a rich velvet-y look and real ringing bells. They’d be so cute in a variety of colors to coordinate with any Christmas theme.
Pipe Cleaner Christmas Tree Bell Ornament Materials:
- pipe cleaners
- mini Styrofoam cones
- small bells
- hot glue
- mini star tree topper ornaments (or thrifty costume jewelry)
- fishing line/ornament hooks
- optional: straight pins with color/ball heads, ribbon, embellishments – be creative!
- optional: Krylon Glitter Blast
Starting near the bottom of the cone, I simply pushed in my pipe cleaner and spiraled around the cone, again tucking the pipe cleaner’s end into the Styrofoam. Repeat as needed. I used three colors to create an ombrè effect. I even braided a few different colors for a different look. I didn’t, but you can use hot glue as needed.
Embellish: using hot glue or straight pins, add a tree topper or pipe cleaner monogram.
Spritz with Krylon Glitter blast for a little sparkle.
Easy. Simple. Pretty. Fun. Then..frame your creation with a pretty Christmas ornament frame.
Create a matching (no sew) ruffled tree skirt.
