If you love angels, this Bell Angel Garland is perfect for you!
It’s quick, easy and inexpensive. Most of the supplies came from the Dollar Store.
Bell Garland from the Dollar Store. They also came in gold and silver.
There were 10 bells on my garland, so these are the supplies for that number.
Christmas Pick with lots of green leaves. You need 20 leaves for 10 angels.
10 One inch Chipboard Circles or Wood circles.
Flesh Colored Paint.
White Ribbon or 10 Small White Bows
Double Sided Tape
Hot Glue Gun
How to Make the Bell Angel Garland.
1. Paint the chipboard disks with the flesh colored paint. Let dry.
I used 3 coats of paint because it looked better.
Use a hair dryer to speed drying.
If you’re using wood circles, they don’t need to be painted.
2. Separate all the leaves into individual leaves.
Overlap the stem part of two leaves to make the wings.
I used double sided tape to hold the leaves how I wanted them and then stapled them together where the staple wouldn’t show.
3. To assemble:
Hot glue leaf wings to the back of the bell.
Hot glue head to the top front of the bell where the hanger hole is.
Hot glue bow to the bell, just under the head.
That’s all there is to it… and the Bell Angel Garland is ready to hang.
Since a hot glue gun will be in use, adults should always be present to supervise this project. It would not be a suitable project for younger children.
I didn’t draw faces on the angels, but they could easily be added.

Now this is darling how in world you people come up with such great idea’s hmmmm,I think some thing then it’s gone,,ha,ha,old age for ya. Great Job ,,,Happy Holiday’s…..
What an excellent project, love it’s so cute, inexpensive and quick. Hopefully our $tree will have the bell garland. They don’t seem to have what stores in other parts of country have which I read about on here. Like the great things I read about in the Target $1 section. We live few miles west of Grand Junction so our supplies have to be from there.
Anyway if we go to town tomorrow/actually today now, I’ll look for those cute bell garlands. Such an adorable idea. Sure glad you shared it.
Happy week, hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful. Enjoy the season
I hope you find the bell garland and enjoy making the angels!
