Metal Jingle Bell Wreath Christmas Ornaments Craft Kit
Pretty on my tree!
I bought the jingle bell ornaments to make with my 3 year old daughter to hang on the tree. The plan is to make ornaments every year, so that eventually all we will have are ornaments made by us.
The ornaments were easy to assemble, but they did not hold the interest of my daughter. She's as big as a 5 year old, but does not have the attention span!
They require a couple tools: Wire cutters, and a glue gun. I tried to use gorilla glue to attach the red bows, but after a quick run to the store the hot glue gun worked much better!
I would recommend these ornaments. A dozen is a good amount to see on the tree without dominating the other ornaments.

I would recommend changing the pipe cleaner from bright green to a color that blends with the bells better. We bought this as a kids craft and the kids were not able to push the bells together super tightly so the pipe cleaner shows through the bells...the bright green is not super appealing to the eye....

This is a great project for 3+ yr olds!
Love this little ornament! Making it is made much easier for young children by stringing the bells on a thin wire instead of the ribbon. (Even pipe cleaners were too large to go through the small opening.) Am packing little kits separately to share with my grandchildren!

Didn't Meet Expectations
We ordered these ornaments for a mufti-generational event. Because the bells were so small little hand (children whose gross motor skills have not fully developed) and some of the older adults had some trouble working with the materials and gave up. Teens and adolescents did fine, and also finished some of the abandoned ones. Some of the younger adults with young children also did just fine

We are going to sell these as ornaments for wine bottles in our wine store. Easy to assemble and good pricing.

Cute Christmas idea for kids. I bought for my 4 year old to make as presents for other family members, but she had a hard time pulling the bells down the chenille stem. She lost interest after trying a few. I even had to work at putting the bells on. The wreath is a bit smaller than I thought it would be, but we are both happy with finished product.

I purchased with for my 4th graders Christmas party. It was very cute and easy for the kids to do.

I found this very difficult to assemble. The bells did not go onto the pipe cleaner easily. I would not recommend this

Cute Craft, but SMALL
These were a cute craft item I added to goody ags for my daughter's 3rd birthday. She was able to put one together with supervision and some help. I would have liked it if they gave more jingle bells so they caould be larger in size. They were VERY small. I liked that once the bells were on the pipe cleaner they did not slide off.
