Wooden Spool Ornament

Image of Wooden Spool Ornament

Let the kids go through Grandma’s collection of spools and turn them into these beautiful ornaments. You can use the materials suggested or be creative with supplies in your craft basket.

Supplies

Bag of large wooden spools (available in wood aisle of craft store)
Fabric scraps trimmed to width of spool
Red and green satin ribbon (we used 1/4" wide ribbon)
Glue

For beaded ornaments:
Treasure Tape 1" roll (if using spools with 1" wide design area)
Treasure Tape 1/8" roll
Diamond Beadlets
Kreinik #12 Braid in 015, 003, 002
Kreinik 1/16" Ribbon in 008, 002, 032
Shallow pan or tray

For iron-on ornaments:
Kreinik Iron-on 1/8" Ribbon in Pearl and in Red
Kreinik Iron-on #16 Braid in Pearl
Kreinik Teflon Press Cloth
Mini iron

Instructions

Steps for iron-on ornaments:

1.Turn your iron onto the highest heat setting and let it heat thoroughly.
 
2.Using double-sided Treasure Tape or your favorite glue, attach fabric scraps to the spool.
 
3.Begin thread decorating by laying one end of your Iron-on Braid or Ribbon on the fabric-covered spool. Cover with the Teflon Press cloth and press with your hot iron for several seconds until the thread adheres. Continue this way, working your design in sections. We used the braid and ribbon to write the word "Joy" but you can create your own design too.
 
4.Attach the satin ribbon as a hanger either by knotting the ends and slipping it through the spool's hole, or by gluing the ends inside the spool's hole.
Steps for beaded ornaments:

1.Using double-sided Treasure Tape or your favorite glue, attach fabric scraps to the spool.
 
2.Lay strips of the thin Treasure Tape roll on the spool. Remove the red liner to expose the top sticky area.
 
3.Begin thread decorating by laying the Kreinik ribbon in your desired pattern. Fill in with the Kreinik braid as desired.
 
4.When thread decorating is complete, lay your spool in a shallow pan and cover remaining sticky areas with Diamond Beadlets.
 
5.Attach the satin ribbon as a hanger either by knotting the ends and slipping it through the spool's hole, or by gluing the ends inside the spool's hole.
