                           Liberty Bell Craft Instructions

      Paper Cup
      Pen or Pencil
      Tape
      Aluminum Foil
      2 Pipecleaners
      Small Jingle Bell


      Poke a small hole in the bottom middle of the cup.
      Cut a piece of foil that is big enough to completely cover the outside of the cup with an
       extra inch at the top.
           o Wrap the foils around the cup and tape it on to secure it, leave the extra at the top
               not taped.
      String the bell onto one of the pipecleaners, slide it to the middle and fold the pipecleaner
       in half.
      Poke the ends of the folded pipecleaner through the hole in the cup so the bell is inside
       the cup.
      Take the second pipecleaner and fold it in half. Wrap the two ends of this pipecleaner
       together so they are attached to the other end of the first pipecleaner. Flatten this and
       tape it down to the top of the bell. Cover and tape with the extra inch of foil.
      Decorate the outside of your Liberty Bell.
