Tis the Season Day 2: jingle bell cluster ornament.

Here is an easy, little ornament I came up with using things I already had.

You will need::

15 jingle bells

some thin ribbon {thin enough to fit through the jingle bell's loop}

some decorative ribbon

Make sure you cut your thin ribbon with an angle, no need to cut it from the spool just yet.
String all of your bells on and seperate them in 5's.
Make a knot to hole the middle section of bells.
Slide the other two side clusters of bells down so they are all together.
Make another knot to keep them all clustered. And then a thrid knot at the top so you create a big loop to hang it from. At this point you can cut the string from teh spool once you know how long you will need.
Tie some decorative ribbon just above the cluster on the thin ribbon. Now you have a cute little jingle ornament.
I think a bunch of these would look good on a tree, especially if you are using any glitter letters or book page ornaments. Simple, classic, and elegant!

Come back tomorrow to see more holiday inspiration! And for the Cookie Recipe Exchange linky party on the 7th!
