My children’s favorite Christmas carol is Jingle Bells, and once the holiday season hits, they won’t stop singing it every day. I don’t blame them, it’s a super catchy song!

This simple DIY jingle bell ball ornament helps bring the sound of jingle bells into the home for Christmas. Even though the ornament looks complicated, it’s actually easy enough that your children can make it with a little help.

For younger kids, they can practice their fine motor skills by threading the jingle bells onto the pipe cleaners. I recommend playing Jingle Bells while you do this craft with your kids – they won’t be able to resist shaking the jingle bells to the jolly music!
