How To Make A Jingle Bell Wreath

2 Materials
30 Minutes

This is my first new Christmas project this season!! Oh, hold on because I have so many I’m planning on sharing with you all!! Let’s kick off this holiday season with this Arhaus inspired jingle bell wreath that I saw on their website a few weeks back and just loved the look of it.

I loved the simplicity of the Arhuas wreath! The thinner wreath form and the muted metallic colors make it much more modern-looking than the traditional jingle bell wreath images that come to mind.

How to make a jingle bell wreath


  • Wreath Ring
  • Jingle Bells (1 inch)
  • Jingle Bells (½inch)
  • Jingle Bells (1½inch)
  • Metallic Spray Paints (rose gold or copper, gold, silver)

For my jingle bell wreath, I’m using 3 sizes of bells: ½ inch, 1inch, and 1½ inch. If you only wanted to use one size jingle bell my suggestion would be to use the small ½inch size but still paint them 2 different metallic shades…I think this would look phenomenal!!

Paint The Jingle Bells

I’m using rose gold, metallic gold, and aluminum silver spray paints for this project. Most craft stores have small-sized cans in their paint department…this project uses hardly any paint.

All it took was one quick coat of paint to coat the jingle bells. Let them completely dry before moving on to the next step.

Making The Wreath

I’m using a 12″ craft ring wreath form as the base of the wreath.

I used hot glue to attach the bells to the wreath form. For the larger bells, I put the hot glue on the back but for the teeny ones I put the glue onto the wreath form.

Then I started with the largest bell and staggered the 1-inch bells and the ½inch bells.

The small bells were snuggled in between the larger bells and helped cover up the wreath form.

Once I finished gluing the jingle bells around the wreath, I added a row of the small bells to the inner and outer edge to hide the brown wreath form.

This was a pretty quick project…it was less than a ½ hour to glue on the bells.

I love the modern look of the wreath! The subtle metallic tones will look great with my natural-themed living room Christmas decor this season!

I hung the jingle bell wreath on an old window frame in my living room and draped a garland over the top. On the top of the shelf I added a few of my DIY faux mercury glass ornaments with greenery.
