For my seventh Holiday Paper Wrap Up DIY tutorial, I’m turning to 1 of this season’s most recognizable mascots—jingle bells. There’s some thing nearly magical about that hushed, musical sound, and so it seemed only fitting to prime a cautiously wrapped present box with a DIY tassel absolutely filled with the satisfied seasonal instruments. Right here’s the scoop on how to make your own this Christmas.
- Pre-wrapped present box
- Gold ribbon
- Mini jingle bells
- Notebook (or something about 5 inches wide)
- Wooden clothespin
Initial, unfurl the gold ribbon and wrap it around something you have on hand that’s about 5 inches wide (I used a notebook). You’ll want to treat this just like you did the DIY pom-pom that we designed a week ago—wrap the ribbon over and more than the notebook until you have a pretty thick tassel, and then meticulously slip it off the notebook even though maintaining its shape. Then immediately pinch the best most edge and slip a wooden clothespin on top to hold every thing with each other.
Next, cut a small scrap of ribbon and tie a knot around the tassel at the top, right exactly where the clothespin is crimping the ribbon collectively. Right after tying your knot, use a pair of scissors to snip off the excess.
To finish your DIY tassel, grab the scissors a single much more time and, whilst holding the bottom of the tassel, snip off all of the loops at the end. This will allow the tassel to fluff up and the ends to fly freely. Now for the enjoyable part—tie a single jingle bell to each of your tassel ends and knot every tightly. Repeat the actions until all of the tassels have bells attached to them.
I left a single of the tassel ends without a bell so that, right after wrapping my box with a lot more gold ribbon, I could very easily tie the bell tassel to the box. Considering that the tassel gets fairly heavy with all of that metal, I located that the presentation was very best when I flopped the entire tassel up on leading of the box in a large heap of jingling gold bells.
