For one reason or another, I have a newfound obsession with jingle bells. I was cleaning out my studio the other day when I found a jar of full of them, and I couldn’t resist. I decided to make a little winter door decoration perfect for the flurry of guests that come & go during the season.
Here’s what I did…
First, I crocheted five strands with a chunky cream yarn. Then, I made some fluffy pom-poms and tied them on to the ends.
Next, I tied jingle bells onto some jute rope (also found in my studio), and reinforced the thread I used to tie them on with some hot glue. You could do this step several different ways; this just worked best for the things I had on hand.
Laying out all the strands to the desired hanging lengths, I tied all the ropes together with a hair band at the top.
Next, I made a loop out of the jute rope for hanging.
With hot glue, I attached the base of the loop to the hair band.
Finally, I used hot glue and repeatedly wrapped the jute rope around to secure the top.
