2. Carefully stick the remaining tape onto the helmet, placing the pipe cleaners underneath at 1-inch intervals, as shown. When you reach the front, secure the tape ends under the helmet's brim.

3. Secure some jingle bells onto the ends of the first and last pipe cleaners. Affix the pom-poms with drops of glue to the remaining pipe cleaners, and then bend all of them upright.
