This wreath measures about 6-7 inches in diameter but you can certainly make a larger one. I like this size because it’s perfect to hang in a small window or place in a bowl as filler.

The wreath may look complicated to make but it’s actually quite simple and you only need a few supplies like large bells, wire ribbon, and a wire coat hanger.

Check out the Video and Photos below for details!

I found the bells at Dollar Tree but you can also get them on Amazon — links in the supplies list. Below is a photo to show the size. Dollar Tree did not have a size designation on the packaging but the bells are approximately 1.6 inches (40 mm) wide.

This little wreath came out so cute, that I decided to make a few more to sell in my antique store booth! Below are the supplies, photos, and instructions.

How to Make a Jingle Bell & Ribbon Wreath – 3 Easy Steps

STEP 1: Cut Wire To Size

Cut the ends off of a wire hanger and use just the straight bottom part. You will need about 15 inches of the straight wire hanger.

Then string your ribbon onto the wire first by pushing the hanger through the center of the wire ribbon. Next, add a bell.

STEP 2: Weave Ribbon And Bells Onto The Wire

Continue weaving ribbons and bells in an under-and-over fashion onto the wire. Leave about 3 inches of ribbon between and fill up the wire. See the video above for a more detailed look at this process.

Note: Do not precut the ribbon, work off the roll and cut at the end to ensure you have enough to work with.

STEP 3: Hook The Ends To Form A Wreath

Cut then bend both ends of the hanger with pliers to make a hook shape. Hook the ends together and form into a circle by hand. To finish, add a decoration or floral pick to the top.
