Inexpensive Christmas Decor
This is an easy and inexpensive way to make large jingle bells to decorate your home for the holidays.
I purchased several large rubber bouncy balls at Walmart and the same number of Hula-Hoops.
Any Hula-Hoop will do, just make sure it will fit around the rubber ball.
Run your fingers along the outside until you find the "bump" where you can feel where the hula-hoop is connected together. Begin to peel back the decorative tape.
Keep the connector on the inside of the hoop on one end and cut the other end until it fits snuggly around the ball. Once you have wrapped the hula-hoop around the center of the ball, put a small amount of super glue on the connector and reconnect.
It should look like this at this point.
Spray paint a metallic gold. You are starting to see it now, right?
After the gold spray paint has dried, paint four black matte circles close to the hula-hoop. then bring the black down to a point until you reach the top of the ball. I freehanded this.
What you get are some very beautiful, large jingle bells that are perfect to decorate your home for the holidays! Talk about bang for your buck!
Aren't they adorable? You could do silver and make a Polar Express Theme or put them around the outside of your house (although I would seal coat them for that.) There are so many possibilities!
