Been intrigued with those wooden spools that have been made into necklaces. My daughters birthday is on Monday, so decided to make one for her. While I’m at it, I decided to make one for myself too .
Here are some of the supplies needed for this project: scissors, ink pad, rubber stamps of your choice, strips of paper to wrap around the spool and some tacky glue, beads, and charms of your choice to dandle from the bottom.
I am using some scrapbook paper, then I measured the width of the spool and used a paper cutter to cut my strip. I cut three strips. One for a pattern and other two for the two spools I am making.
Then I decided to rubber stamp before gluing the strip around the spool. For this particular spool, I had rubber stamp that states it is New York stamped both ends of the spools with this stamp. See below –
Next I added a gold tone metal leaf, a brass bird and it needed one more thing so I added some gemstones i had sitting around. All the charms hanging have been wire wrapped so they can’t fall off. I thought some matching earrings would be nice too. So used the same leaf that was dangling from spool and made earrings. See below-
I decided to be creative with wrapping it. I used a match box and covered it with brown paper, lined it with a napkin and here is the wrapping paper I am going to use.
