On the 1st Day of Christmas

Welcome to the Scrapbook Divas 12 Days of Christmas.

It's Natalie here - I'm lucky enough to be the first project in the 2010 Christmas festivities.

On the 1st Day of Christmas Crafting we are going to make a Christmas Bell using a small plain old terracotta pot.


Step 1: Paint the pot whatever Christmas colour you choose. (I painted both inside and out)

Step 2: Thread a few small bells onto ribbon/twine and hang inside the bell.
Fasten using a button on the top. (please ignore the roughness of the inside paint job of my bell - no-one was supposed to see the inside of it)

Step 3: Decorate the outside of your bell.
I used strips and stars from the new Fancy Pants Tradition range which can be found in the Diva's store here
I also used pom pom ribbon around the top and bottom of the bell and thick ribbon on top.

Step 4: Add a Christmas message - I chose JOY.

And that's it - your Christmas Bell is done.

I hope you have enjoyed this project and have a go at making your own.
