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 and that they could easily be painted, so I grabbed a cardboard cone and decided to make a jingle bell tree. I thought these would be so cute for either a stand alone decoration or in a group as a table centerpiece.

I had some white spray paint and some Glitterblast paint to try to make all of these different jingle bells seem like a cohesive set. You can find supplies here.
This is a great way to use jingle bells as a craft. You can also pair them up with pom poms to make it even cuter!
I separated out all of my bells according to size. I wanted to arrange them with the smallest at the top and largest at the base of the cardboard cone.
I hot glued them to a cardboard cone starting at the base and working my way up to make the DIY jingle bell trees.
While 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. If you don’t have glitter spray paint, you can also use white craft glue and sprinkle on glitter as well.
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 bell 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!

What a great idea! I bet it sounds good too!
How cute!! Great idea!!
This really has my bells jingling! What a great way to make those cheap dollar store bells sing!
And isn’t everything better with a little bling?!
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.
Love it! Those jingle bells are so versatile. I love the glittery blue snowflakes overlayed on the tree, just the right touch of bling!
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.
What a cute idea! I have a stash of jingle bells that may just have found their purpose in life!
Brilliant work! You made something pretty into something dazzling! Love it!
