I bought these wooden spools at Hobby Lobby the other day and painted them white...
Here is the list of what you will need to make one ornament:
1/2" wide fabric strip at least 36" long to 45"
2 head pins
2 Pearls (need to be larger than the hole in the spool)
1 glass bead(smaller than the pearl)
How to make Fabric Thread on a Spool Ornament
1. Twist the fabric strip to make fabric thread. (I used my sewing machine to hold the tip so I can twist the fabric)
There are several ways to connect the fabric strips, but I sewed them together. If you decided to tie them, that part will be a little bulky and more noticeable when you wind the fabric thread around the spool. It was unexpectedly fun to create my own fabric thread, I might start doing that with my scraps!
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial. I will see you at the next post. :)
