1. Paint pot (if desired) and allow to dry.

2. Cut a length of ribbon approximately 15cm long.  Thread the bead on to the ribbon and move to the centre. Then tie the bell on to the bead so it can hang down freely inside the upsidedown pot. This is important so the bell makes a sound when it is moved.

3. Thread both ends of the ribbon up through the hole in pot and tie the ends in a knot (as shown in the picture above).

4. Cut another length of ribbon to make a bow. Tie this ribbon over the knot, on the ribbon attached to the pot.

5. Write a name, date or message on the pot in permanent marker if desired.

Use for:

  • Gift for teachers, friends, relatives
  • Christmas concerts
  • Christmas Tree decoration
  • Craft for kids and adults
  • Christmas table name place tags (doubles as a gift to take home)

Sounds pretty!
