A Spool Full Of Love

"Christmas is a togethery
sort of holiday,"
said Pooh.

"That's my favorite kind,"
said Piglet.

Hello, sweet and faithful friends!
I'm so glad you're here.
Today I thought I would show you
a fun little Christmas ornament
that is a cinch to make.

I found the large wooden spools at Hobby Lobby
and they came in a package of 4.

I purchased two things of greenery,
one red and one white.

The metal snowflakes were found in the 
miniature Christmas tree aisle.

And the finishing touch was a Scrabble letter
which can be also be found at Hobby Lobby
or antique shops.

To begin with,
I tied a strip of lace around the spool.
Then I clipped off some greenery
and hot glues it onto the lace.
After that I applied the metal snowflake
and topped it with the Scrabble letter.
Easy peasy, right?
No sewing involved,
just hot gluing.

These would make lovely little gifts
for friends and family since
you can easily customize them with the letters.

Happy creating,
my friends!

Have a most beautiful day!
Love and hugs!

I have a couple of spools from Magnolia ribbons (Joanna Gaines) and they have no hole through the center. They are such nice spools that I would love to think of something like this. You are a creative thinker!
