Gather 7 wooden thread spools, similarly sized. Those that have old paper or stamped graphics will look the best.
Vintage Thread Spool Mini Wreath
Old, wooden thread spools have great graphics. This simple DIY project enables you to enjoy the vintage graphics in a whole new way! Great gift idea for sewers, Christmas gift topper or tree ornament. They also look adorable hanging from the back of a dining chair.
For a uniform look to the thread spools, cut any old thread off with a utility knife.
Drill small holes through each thread spool.
Thread spools onto a chenille stem. Create the wreath shape, getting spools as close together as possible, all facing the same direction. Twist chenille closed tightly at top.
With a hot melt glue gun, glue wherever spools meet. Glue from the underside & try not to have big gobs of glue. Glue a skinny ribbon around the middle of the spools, tucking in between each. Add a loop at the top for hanging.
Embellish your Vintage Thread Spool Mini Wreath with bits of greenery and a jingle bell. This will also cover your ribbon knot and glue blobs. See my blog for other repurposed crafting tips: https://lorabloomquist.com/vintage-thread-spool-mini-wreath-how-to/
