Old wooden spools are great for crafting; there are so many things you can do with them. If you’re lucky enough to have some, don’t throw them out when the thread is gone – make something!
quaggy must have quite the collection of old spools. She created two gorgeous hearts using them, adding buttons, charms and other doo-dads to make this fabulous wall hanging.
Here’s another great use of spools: as a base for a tassel. Mistress Jennie created this spooky spool. It’s perfect for Halloween, or any time!
Need a little photo holder? Spools make the perfect base. Decorate with pretty paper, flowers and buttons and add some wire, and there you go! I had so much fun making these.
Here’s a little magic for you: sweet spool faeries. Knickertwist embellished these beautifully. The wings on her faeries are dried flower petals, so they’re extra sweet!
How adorable is this gingerbread man ornament? Again, quaggy makes the most of her spool collection!
