Snowflake with Jingle Bell Ornament Craft Kit
Awesome "vintage looking" snowflake ornament
I ordered 4 sets of these and wish I had ordered more. Doesn't take very long, and the first two that I did I had a bit of an issue as I kept bending the ornament when I was wrapping the wire. What I found is if I set the wire as I wanted it to look (less coil, or more coil), that I didn't have as much of an issue..
I also cut the wire as I went along to ensure that the wiring was falling exactly as I wanted. I want to do a few "testing" by painting the snowflakes, wires and bells. I did three different ones and everyone one had extra bells and plenty of wire to complete the tasks.

Cute but annoying to put together
I had a gift certificate and decided I needed more anowflakes on my Christmas tree. So I bought this. It's good quality and a cute piece, but putting one together is a little annoying. You have to thread the bells on a curly wire and space them apart correctly to get it to look nice. Also, wrapping the wire around the snowflake works, but it's better to thread the wire through the individual holes, which takes forever because you have to do the bells too.
