SUPER EASY WEDDING CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY BELLS MADE FROM PAPER DOILIES EMBELLISHMENTS

The smaller gold bells on left are made from 4" doilies



White Paper Lace bells Perfect for Weddings or Showers!

On Window

Here are the basic supplies you will need:
5" Paper Doilies (for small bells) (each doily makes 2 bells)
10" Paper Doilies (for the larger "wedding bells")
Tape regular or double sided
Paper Glue (if you would like to add a backing)
Construction paper or wrapping paper etc.
Ribbon
Scissors
Optional: Glitter - more ribbons etc!

If you would like to back your bells and make a bit sturdier use construction paper wrapping paper.
Glue the doilies down and let dry.
After glue has dried - cut doilies out.

Fold doily in half - and cut along the crease.
Now you are ready!
Simply roll the half doily in a cone.
I used regular tape on the outside of the cone for this example.
But you can use double sided tape if you chose, so that it does not show.

Just about ready!

  1. Such delicate things and so easy to make, i made some recently but i spray painted them a golden colour and they didnt turn out so good, why do you think that is?

    1. Did you paint them before you made them or after? I find before - works best - and also do not soak them with paint

  2. To expand your project into more of a learning project, you could consider reading different holiday-related books.Nounours Géant
