Project

Bell Scarves, Hats, and Mittens

Introduction

Adorn store-bought hats, scarves, and mittens with bells before wrapping them to give as gifts. Here, we sewed small bells in different colors onto the cuff of the hat; a larger bell hangs from braided yarn sewn into the crease on top. Three silver bells sewn onto the backs will help youngsters find their mittens. A scarf trimmed to match makes an ensemble that fairly begs to go ice-skating.

    OMG!! LLL, I remember doing the same thing in school (jingle bells on my tennies). Too funny! Thanks for reminding me of that.

    Be careful not to use jingle bells on mittens of children under 3 (choking hazard).

    Perfectly suited for someone you don't know what to fet for them - and one of a kind. Easy project and very cute. I had been puzzled what to get a little girl that has everything - she will love it.

    Absolutely adorable! Very inexpensive, but truly unique. Reminds me of when we put jingle bells in our lace-up Ked's tennis shoes in school--so we would "jingle" as we walked down the halls!

    I've looked for the tiny colored bells for another project as well. All I find is gold and silver. I'm looking for red and green. Any suggestions on where I could find these?
