Holiday Craft: Jingle Bell Bracelets
Total Time 1 hour Ages school-age

Take one plastic-covered card table, add a good-natured teen (well-compensated, of course), and throw in a healthy supply of colored beads, jingle bells, and pipe cleaners in a variety of colors and textures. That's our recipe for a foolproof kids craft station -- and for some great-looking wrist and ankle bracelets your young guests will love to make and wear.

What you'll need

  • Pipe cleaner, wrist or ankle size
  • Bells
  • Beads

How to make it

  1. Jingle Bell Bracelets - Step 1

    To create a basic bracelet, just thread beads and bells on a wrist- or ankle-size pipe cleaner (we used the bumpy type here), then form it into a circle; make a clasp by looping together the ends of the pipe cleaner.

  2. Jingle Bell Bracelets - Step 2

    For a fancier look, form a single pipe cleaner into a circle, thread on 4 or 5 bells, then coil additional pipe cleaners around the first, between each bell.

  3. Jingle Bell Bracelets - Step 3

    For our deluxe version, start with a bumpy pipe cleaner, threading 1 bell onto each "bump"; form a single pipe cleaner into a circle, then twist the bumpy pipe cleaner around it so that each bell faces outward.
