Bell Craft

Here is a bell craft. It's my first tutorial soooooooooooo I do not know what too type. I hope you like it.




Here are the necessary tools:

hammer
largish nail
needle nose pliers
jingle bell
something pretty and small (bead, button, etc)
glue
ribbon
scissors



Here it goes!

Take a pair of needle nose pliers and bend back the folds on the bell.




After you pull all the petals back, use your hammer and nails to punch a hole in the top of one of the petals.  I did it outside on the concrete.


Be careful, don't hit your fingers!
It should look something like this.


It's good to have a variety of things to put in the bell.  It's fun to try out the different things for the center of the bell.








Now fill the bell with glue.   I did it on paper because the glue will drip out of the space at the bottom.



Put what you want on the glue in the certer of the bell.


After the glue has dried, run your ribbon through the hole you made with the hammer and nail.



Tie at the top and hang up!



I used a bell I already made.
