Make Christmas Bells with Old Egg Cartons

This is an easy project kids can do by themselves or with very little help.

You will need:

  • Old egg cartons
  • Scissors
  • Yarn or string
  • Small bells
  • Elmer's glue
  • Glitter
  • Paint
Cut the egg carton into separate cups. With the point of the scissors or a sharp pencil, poke a hole in the bottom of each cup.

Decorate each cup however you like. Mix glitter into your paints for an quick colorful sparkle effect.

Cut a piece of string or yarn about 6 inches long. Tie a small bell onto one end. Tie a small knot in the string about 1 inch above the bell. Thread the string through the hole in the egg cup. Pull it all the way through till the knot hits the inside of the cup.

To hang from the tree, you can tie a loop in the rest of the string, or you can tie/attach it to to a regular Christmas decoration hook.

For a pretty door decoration, tie several bells to the bottom of a hanger. Decorate the rest of the hanger with ribbon or evergreen swags. Hang from a door to hear jingle bells every time the door opens!
