Hey there!!
I'm fairly new to posting...but I had to share my bargain as well as ask "What the heck can I do with this!"..LOL
I got at Walmart tonight...5pk of 35mm gold jingle bells, they are like a little less than 1 and a half inches big (pretty big jingle bells!)...for 10 cents a pack!!!!!!! I grabbed every package which was about 20..hahaha...so I now have 100 big jingle bells and need ideas what to do with them....
I know I can make one of those wreathes but I was more looking to use them by the piece...like faces one each one or something like that. SOmetime in the near future I want to sell some stuff at a Christmas Craft Fair and why not start early!

I know this was the right place to come to because you all have such wonderful imaginations!
Thanks in advance!

Well my personal favorite use for jingle bells is on the toe of a Christmas stocking!
Perhaps you could make earrings, neclaces. bracelets.
How about some customized zipper pulls, maybe with some beadwork?  Or to adorn a handbag?

I found several yars ago a cildrens project using Large Jingle bells.  I'va made them once ot twice since.  They are a hit with young and old.
 Prime and paint the bell white.  Paint a snowman face on one side of the bell (I have found you can get free face patterns for painting all over the web if you aren't that good a painter.)
Use wire, fabric, chenille stems(pipe cleaners) etc to make a snow hat, top hat or ear muffs and tun it into a jingle bell snowman head neckalce.

I hope my description is ok I don't have any photos.  Good Luck.
