Holiday Bell Craft

Supplies: Small terra cotta pot, paints, ribbon, bell

Optional: glue, fake gems, glitter, stickers, puff balls, other decor

Bell ornaments are a lot of fun to make, and they will last for years. Small terra cotta pots are the best to use. First paint the outside of the pot any color; maybe white for a snowman, or classic red and green, or swirl white and light blue paints together and use it all winter. Once painted allow it to dry. When the pot is completely dry, use glue to attach fake jewels, beads, or puff balls to it. Use glitter sparkle or trim. Then thread a small bell with some ribbon, and pull the ribbon up through the hole in the pot. Tie a knot in the ribbon so the bell stays secure, and add any other final touches.
