Day 4 of the Holiday Craft Party brings wreaths. The sound of jingle bells always makes me think of Santa Claus and his reindeer. I made an easy jingle bell wreath so I could hear jingle bells every time our front door is opened or closed. Be sure to enter the giveaway for Michaels and Minted.com gift cards at the end of this post.

- 14 inch Floracraft foam wreath
- 1.5 inch wire edged red ribbon (ribbon doesn’t need to be wire edged)
- 5/8 inch wide red glitter ribbon
- 3 curly bows (bought mine from Hobby Lobby)
- sequin pins
- 3 jingle bells (32 mm size)
- 5 jingle bells (20 mm size)
- duct tape (optional)
The correct ribbon size for this project is key. I tried wrapping a 2.5 inch wide ribbon around the wreath and it was a big fail. The 1.5 inch wide ribbon was perfect for this project. I started the ribbon by attaching it to the foam wreath with duct tape but you could have also used sequin pins.
The ribbon was wrapped with some overlap around the wreath. I used sequin pins to pin the ribbon every couple of wraps.
When the wrapping was complete, I folded the ribbon over so there would be no fraying. Then I used several sequin pins to secure the ends.
Next I cut 1/8 inch wide strips of the red glitter ribbon and put one through each of 3 medium jingle bells and 5 small jingle bells.
I gathered the ends together and stapled them several times.
Then I used sequin pins to hang the jingle bells from the front of the wreath.
Finally I pinned the 3 curly bows on top of where I added the ribbons to the wreath.
This easy jingle bell wreath looks great on my front door!

You can’t get any more Santa than red and jingle bells 🙂 I love how your wreath turned out, Kelly! Is the ribbon textured like velvet?
I love your wreath! And want to make it. How much of the 1.5 ribbon do I need?

This wreath is oh so festive! Jingle bells always make me think of Santa Claus too. Thanks for the tip about making sure you start with the correct ribbon size!
Love this wreath, Kelly! The red is so gorgeous, and the jingle bells are the perfect detail. Those curly bows are so fun!
