Jingle bells are a common theme around the holidays, so when you want to create a Christmas craft or some homemade Christmas decorations, consider incorporating bells into the design. Many different Christmas crafts involve bells and are simple to create. Children can even make jingle bell Christmas crafts, as long as an adult supervises them closely when they are handling scissors and other sharp tools.

Make a garland using bells for your Christmas tree. This is a simple craft that even small children can handle. Choose a variety of beads from a craft store, along with small Christmas bells. Use a thin piece of ribbon, a piece of yarn or even a piece of fishing line as the string for your garland. Tie a large knot on one end of the string and thread the beads and bells onto it. When the garland is finished, knot the other end and hang it onto the Christmas tree.

Wreath Ornament

Make a small ornament that looks like a wreath using small jingle bells. Use a short length of fishing line to create this wreath. Thread small bells onto the fishing line, then tie the ends of the line together to create a circle. Place enough bells onto the fishing line so that it stays taught and in a circle when you tie the ends together. There should be no space between the bells. Use red ribbon to tie a small bow, then hot glue it to the wreath. Hook a Christmas tree ornament hanger onto the fishing line or one of the bells and hang it on the tree.

Candle Holder

Use large Christmas bells to create a candle holder. Heat up a hot glue gun and glue the large bells together until they create a circle that is large enough to place a candle inside. Choose a large candle for this craft so that the candle and candle holder have more impact. Place the bell candle holder on a side table or use it as a centrepiece for your table.

Christmas Tree

Use a cone-shaped piece of florist's foam to create a Christmas tree decorated with jingle bells. Cover the florist's foam with green craft paper to give the Christmas tree a base colour. Hot glue a row of small jingle bells around the base of the Christmas tree. Continue gluing rings of jingle bells around the tree until you reach the top, then glue a bell to the top of the tree as well.
