this is an easy ornament to make with paper and beads in any size - mine here is about 9" long. you could string a bunch together like little paper lanterns on a garland, that would be super cute.
cut 3 concentric circles from cardstock. score each circle into 8 even wedges with 4 intersecting lines, then fold and pinch the sections in opposite directions on the lines to create a zig-zaggy bell shape.
string each bell on to wire, using a cut piece of a drinking straw in between each bell as a spacer. String beads at the top and bottom, and embellish as desired.
coil the end of the wire at the bottom, and twist the wire at the top into a loop for hanging.
