The Christmas ornament projects get fun by the day. Next is the cute crochet bells-free pattern. This is a super cute and fast project that can be made within a very few minutes.
Thinking of using up your random skeins of yarn this season? Why not make a crochet bell using this free pattern?
For some extra fun, I have added some cute metal bells ornaments to make this crochet version even more useful. My kids love this version as it makes some funny jingles.
You can substitute with beads or totally leave these out if you have younger kids at home.
