Making a Thread Spool Christmas Tree
Read More Comments
I love old wooden thread spools and decided to make some Christmas tree decorations with them for a homespun Christmas tree this year. It's simple enough for a child to do and fun to personalize! Try them yourself!
- empty thread spools
- any holiday wrapping paper or even copies of family photos!
- rubber bands
- craft glue
- Cut out pictures or decorative paper (even music sheets) and glue onto empty spools. I added rubber bands to hold them in place until thoroughly dried.
- Cut 18" long assorted ribbons (or longer if you want longer ornament tails) and fold ribbon in half.
- Fold again to fit ribbon into spool hole and thread it through the middle.
- You may tie each end of the ribbon on the spool to hold in place if you like. Note that I kept a pen in the looped side to keep it from slipping out when I was tying the other side of the ribbon. I tied some and not others just to experiment.
- Snip a few slits in the end of the ribbon and curl if desired. I ended up liking them the best.
- Happy Holidays!

Make a cute and easy thread Christmas tree for mom or grandma. Very easy for kids to make. Take cardboard and cut into triangle to look like a tree. Proceed to hot glue/low temp glue thread rolls to cardboard. (You can use Elmers glue, but then you can not remove to use.
