Bells made from coffee creamers.
Approximate Time: About one half hour or less
Spray paint creamers inside and out with gold, silver or bronze paint. Let dry.
Double a piece of thread and put the cut ends through the eye of the needle. Insert into a coffee creamer from the bottom, go up through the top of the creamer, and back down about a fraction of an inch away. Bring the cut ends of the thread back through the loop at the other end and snug up against the inside top of the creamer. Now bring the needle and thread through the hole in the clapper bead.
Slide the bead up inside the bell temporarily and remove needle. Using the height of the bell as a guide, tie a double or triple knot in the thread a little below the lower rim. Slide clapper bead down as far as knot and cut thread ends.
Glue ends of ribbon or cord to top of bell and tie in a bow. Stick tiny bows on top of bell.

I don't use coffee creamers, but this is a clever idea! My husband has a Keurig. Might be able to use those K-cups this way (and there is already a hole poked in it from the machine!).
