The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: No Sew Felt Bell Ornament:
Print the Easy Christmas Crafts No Sew Felt Bell Ornament.
Cut four bell shapes. (I folded the felt, pinned the pattern and cut two shapes at a time.)
Thread each piece of yarn through the eyelet at the top of each bell.
Use a piece of thread to help pull the yarn through the eyelet.
Move each bell to the middle of the yarn.
Position one of the bells and its yarn on one of the bell shapes. The bell should just barely extend beyond the felt.
Center the strands of yarn through the middle of the bell shape especially at the top.
Glue the second bell shape over the first. Only glue along the outer edges shown by the yellow arrows.
Make sure the glue secures the yarn to both pieces of felt at the small round area at the top.
The yarn through the rest of the bell should move freely
Glue the second bell shape using the same process.
Position and glue the embellishment to the front of the bell shape.
Wrap the embellishment to the back.
Glue to the bell shape and trim any excess.
Add poly fiberfill stuffing (or cotton balls, or facial tissues, or other stuffing) to the bell shapes to make them three-dimensional.
Only a small amount of stuffing is needed in the top of the bell shapes.
For the bell to hang freely in the middle of the shape, separate the stuffing into two pieces.
Add one piece on one side of the yarn holding the bell.
Add the second piece on the other side of the yarn.
Push the stuffing into the top of the bell shape.
Tie the ends of the yarns together in a bow.
