Jingle Bell Letters – JOY


This is a fun, simple project that will add a pop to any Christmas decor.
I did PEACE last year and decided to do JOY this year.

how to make bell lettersBells are everywhere. Lots of them.
I didn’t see any that I loved though or that I thought would match with the decor I already had.
I bought 3 cans of spray paint, primed the wood just so brown wouldn’t show through and spray painted the bells.
I was at Hobby Lobby and picked the 3 colors I liked best:
Krylon Seaweed (gloss), Pistachio (satin), and Cherry Red (gloss)

They probably wont be perfect and that’s ok. Only 2-3 sides will show. I did make circular motions with my arm though so the top of the bell wouldn’t be the only part getting sprayed.
I hot glued big and small bells on and that was it.

I love the more matte look and not so much shine.

What colors do you decorate with? Do you change every few years?

  1. So cute! Love the colors you chose

  2. I love anything that involves a can of spray paint and can turn out so great! Did you just buy the containers of bells at Hobby Lobby as well? I need to get some – my girls are obsessed with them!
