My favorite part of the year is finally here. The holidays to me means fun gatherings, fun decorations and great presents. I love decorating for the holidays. You can either shop for new decorations or, what I love to do, make my own. Here is a decoration you can wrap your Christmas tree or around you house, it made of paillettes.

Materials:

Directions:

  • Take Needle and thread. Take a paillette and put needle through it. Once the paillette is through, tie a knot. You do this with every paillette, 1 inch apart from eachother.
  • Make it as long as you want, when your a done, tie a knot at the end.

Instructions

You can create any design you’d like on the jingle bells using gem-tac glue and flat back rhinestones. Also laying one ribbon on top the other, you can tie it around the handle of the jingle bells.
