We make these at Christmas – a bit tricky for under 8’s. Hang them up on a ribbon or paper chain they look great.


  • 1 Sheet square or round paper
  • 1 Small Pom pom
  • 1 Length of ribbon


  1. Fold paper into 8ths across centre (you should end up with a triangle shape - with the tip being the centre point of the paper)
  2. Cut across all sheets of folded paper starting at the edge furtherest from centre point. Do not cut all the way through. Alternate directions of cuts until nearly at centre point.
  3. Unfold paper, thread and tape ribbon and Pom Pom into bell. Hang the bell up.
