WITH Christmas just over a month away, a lot of us are pulling out the decorations and putting up our trees. 

But one savvy mum has shared an easy way to level up your wreath and trees – and it looks so much more expensive than it is. 

Charlee, known online as @buildandcreatehome, regularly shares DIY content with her 2.1 million followers. 

In one of her recent videos, the savvy content creator shares how she transforms leftover fizzy drink cans into faux gold bells. 

During the 31-second video, the crafty mum is seen cutting the cans to size, before painting them gold and adding a clapper, made from string and a bead.

“Here’s how I made Christmas bells from soda cans.

“First I hammered the cans a bit to make them look worn. 

“Then I carefully cut the can about two-thirds of the way down, all the way around. Be careful with the sharp edges. 

“Then I folded over the edge with pliers and I used the tab as a hook on the bell and a bead tied to a string as the clapper.

“Then I spray painted everything gold, and I used black paint, dabbed a crumbled paper towel in it, and blotted it around the bell. I used a clean one to wipe off any excess. 

“I attached a set to a wreath and then added a few sets around my Christmas tree.”
