Happy New Year!! — Jingle Bell Noisemaker Bracelet

Emily loved ringing in the new year with this fun jingle bell noisemaker bracelet!

To make your own noisemaker bracelet, you will need: felt, thread, jingle bells, and a small button. Cut two long pieces of felt about 1 1/2 inches wide. Measure your child’s wrist and add about 2 inches for the length.
Whip stitch around the entire bracelet.
To one end, cut a small button hole and whip stitch around the opening.
To the other end, sew on a small button.
Sew on the jingle bells!
Make lots of NOISE!!
From our family to yours…. Happy New Year!


  1. Dear Valerie,

    Please give one of these to Clara so that I can find her when she wanders off.


  2. Noisemaker? Uh, I think I'll pass on that one. LOL!

    @ Mark — I was thinking about a large cow bell. Would that work?

    @ Petula — You don't want to know about Emily's full sized drum set in our living room, do you? Hope you are enjoying a Happy New Year!

  4. This is a super cute noisemaker! My kids would love it! I'll keep it in mind for next year. Happy new Year!

    As if we didn't already have noise! lol But it does look like a super cute noisemaker! Way less annoying than those blow horns they gave to the kids at church last night! Happy New Year!

    I love this noisemaker! Anna's preschool had a version of it with straws instead of felt, and Anna still can't get enough of it.

  7. Happy New Year! What a fun fashion accessory, because there is no way ER would be content to only wear that once a year! We have a store bought version that has been worn out of the house many a time.

  8. This is really really cute! Great idea 😉

    What a great Craft. I bet this one would beat all at a birthday party. HOW fun. Thanks for the cute idea

    now if I can just make one for my 21 months old ankle lol

    PSsst my boys have a drum set too!

  12. Make a couple of smaller versions that fit around the ankles and dance the day away. I can still recall my baby girl's (OMG she'll be 38 this year!!!) delight at she feet making music.

    Aren't there some cultures that make lots of noise for the New Year to ford off evil?

  13. love the orange!
