How To Make Silver Bell Christmas Ornaments

5 Materials
1 Hour

Those miniature jello molds aren't just for jello. You can make all kinds of cute decor with them. I found a set of bell molds and made silver bell Christmas ornaments for the tree this year.

The ornaments were super easy to make. They can be customized in all sorts of ways with different stenciled designs and colors of spray paint.

The bell molds were $1 each which isn't a steal but an okay deal. I knew immediately what I wanted to do with them. You can just look at the silver bells and see ornaments.

They needed to be dressed up just a bit and I found a template in my craft supply stash that was perfect. Instead of stenciling with a paint brush I just spray painted the stenciled design onto the bell.

I used twine as a hanger and added a bit of ribbon to the top of the bell. Visit the blog here to see my best hot glue tip.

      Folks, she did not make the molds but purchased the little aluminum shapes. I have found different ones here in the South. I too, have made Christmas ornaments from them. I used mod podge to put Christmas Carol music onto the inside, the hot glue tiny vintage glass as decorations. Used a nail and hammer to make holes for the jute to hang on the tree.

    Did you cut the molds out or did you use them to actually make the bells out of something else, and if so what did you make them out of??? I think they aware super cute and would love to make them myself if I was sure how you made them.. thank you
