Our Girl Scout troop was going to participate in the local Christmas parade. We had mostly finished our Between Earth and Sky journey so figured a fun craft for them to make for the parade would be good. Since it is for Christmas bells are what came to mind.
I wanted something they could shake and jingle while walking in the parade. I had seen those rings with bells attached that go on your door knob, and that was my inspiration.
First stop was the Dollar Tree and then to Joann Fabrics for some very thin ribbon.
What I bought:
Green Bells (50 count packs) – I bought all 3 Dollar Tree had since we have 12 girls in our Troop I need a lot of jingle.
Bangle Bracelets (14 count pack)- Dollar Tree toy section
White 1/8″ ribbon (5 yards) – JoAnn Fabrics
Red 1/8″ ribbon (5 yards) – Jo Ann Fabrics
I spent $4.00 plus tax at Dollar Tree and $2.58 plus tax at Joann’s. I will also use duct tape from my own stash.
To make things fastest precut and sort all the supplies into baggies (then reuse for the next craft)
There you go festive Jingle Bell Shakers for under $10!!
