Christmas countdown 3 - jingle bell necklaces

I grabbed some bells to make necklaces to sell at our school's winter festival, and Starboy was thrilled to help out. I cut holly leaves out of felt and put a little slit in them, then added a few red beads we had on hand. The ribbon and bells were on sale at Jo-Ann. We made 27 of them (three bells came without a ringer! No wonder they were on sale!).

Today's book came from school: "Merry Christmas Big Hungry Bear!" by Don and Audrey Wood. The mouse wants to protect all his Christmas loot from the bear, but then realizes that a big ol' scary bear might be lonely and needing a little Christmas, so he decides to share his gifts.
