Participated in the Altered Spool swap, that was organized by MissingWillow. Got an idea wanted to create something for her related to the spools.

Though we all use spools, Spool Trees are rarely seen. They are hard to grow and have to be cultivated by Unicorns with the help of fairies. So I wanted to make MW a spool tree of her very own, since they will not grow on her farm.

Spool Tree complete with spool tree swing.

Thanks for checking it out, and let me know if you're able to grow one near you.  Smiley

What a lovely specimen of the rare spool tree!

How big is the tree?  Those spools sure look small!

Thank you! Smiley

Think it is about 8 - 10 inches, including the base. The spools on the tree are 10mm, and the swing is the top and bottom of an old spool from my Grandmother's sewing box.

So glad you like it MW!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
