Cup Bell

For this project you will need:
A small plastic/paper cup, some pipe cleaners, some ribbon, an old bread tie, a fishing sinker (or a washer), scissors, and stickers 

Start by wrapping the bread tie around the fishing sinker...making sure that it is secure and tight

Take your scissors and poke 2 holes in the top of the cup

Bug picked green ribbon to put through the holes

Take the bread tie and 'thread' it through the ribbon on the inside of the cup

Once you have the length right for the pendulum part of the bell tie the ribbon on the top to secure it a double knot or triple knot would be your best bet

Twist the left over bread tie around itself to secure the pendulum

Cut the left over ribbon off

Have your little one pick a couple pipe cleaners and twist them together

Push the pipe cleaners through between the ribbon and the cup

Fold the two ends of the pipe cleaner up towards each other and twist them together forming a handle. 

Now it is time to decorate! 


Bug decided to decorate inside and out :)

Sorry for the yucky pictures...the camera on my phone isn't a very good one!!!
