Spun Cotton Bells: Frequently Asked Questions
How to make hanging bell ornaments out of bell blanks?
Spun cotton shapes are great materials to make hanging ornaments with: they are lightweight, they are easy to paint, and they all have little holes on one end.
The ornaments can then be finished with glitter and a clear coat such as a gloss medium. The gloss medium will make the bells shine and will prevent the glitter from falling off.
Are Spun Cotton Bells sturdy?
Spun cotton bells and spun cotton shapes in general are relatively sturdy because they are made of tight layers of paper.
What type of paint is recommended?
Any paint that works on paper will work on spun cotton shapes. We like to use acrylic paint because it dries very fast and once dry, it doubles as a protective layer around the shape.
How to easily paint a Spun Cotton Bell?
To easily paint a spun cotton bell, the best way is to insert a pick into the shape and use it as a handle. To let the bell dry, simply rest the stick in a container such as a tall glass, or poke it into a piece of foam.
How to glue Spun Cotton Bells onto other spun cotton shapes?
A hot glue gun works wonders because hot glue dries very fast. The two shapes only have to be held together for a few seconds for a solid bond to create. Tacky glue creates an even stronger bond (its more liquid consistency allows it to penetrate the fibers of the bell shapes a little deeper) but tacky glue doesn’t dry as fast.
