With the fireplace going and some holiday time on your heads, it’s easy to imagine what European winter would be like. Sip a hot chocolate
and create this cute string of jingle bells for now or in half a years time!
- 8, 10 or 12 used capsules
- Wooden beads
- String, can be of different colour
- Thick hessian string
1 Peel the foil off the cups and throw in the recycling.
2 Clean the capsules
(the coffee is great for the garden!)
3 Cut a strand of string of 20 cm per 2 capsules
4 Start with a double knot, then enough beads to be higher than the capsule
5 Thread through the capsule
from within, and thread through the next one from it’s top
6 Match the same amount of beads as how you started
7 End the strand with a knot
8 Repeat for each pair of “bells”
9 Fold a long strand of thicker rope and make a knot at the top, creating a loop
10 Make a knot after 8 or 10 cm, tie a pair of bells on the the string, and secure with a second knot
11 Continue until all of them are on
Hang next to the fireplace or use different colours to decorate a baby room.
