Bell Crafts for Christmas

 

 

Make a Plastic Cup Bell

This craft goes with the Christmas Bible lesson "Ring the Bells!" on The Resource Room.

Bell Cup Craft

What you will need:

Large Plastic Cups

Jingle Bells

Chenille Stems

Christmas Ribbon

Sequins

Christmas Stickers

Printer Paper

Scissors

Glue

Pompoms (Optional)

 

What to do:

1. Before class punch small holes in the top of the cups with a sharp pair of scissors.

2. Print out labels that say "Make a Joyful Noise" onto computer paper and cut them out. (Pattern available to members.)

3. In class have your children string jingle bells on one end of a Chenille stem. When they are done determine where you will need to make a loop in the chenille stem so that the bells hang down just below the rim of the cup and stop the stems from being pulling back up through the hole. Make a loop and then stick the end without the bells up into the cup through the hole. Loop the end of the stem and wind it around the part of the stem that is just sticking out of the bottom of the cup.

4. Tie a bow at the top of the bell.

5. Have your children glue on the "Make a Joyful Noise" title to the front of their bells and decorate the rest of the bell with Christmas stickers, sequins, glitter glue, etc.
