Welcome to day 8 of the 12 Days of Christmas Ornament event. By this time into the ornament making, my dining room, aka "Christmas headquarters", is a complete mess!
The table is full of ribbons, papers, bells, ornaments... Any Christmas related craft in our home is right here.
There are also boxes all around the room which makes me walk sideways, each time I try to go to the other side of the table to grab something.
Two days ago, I was trying to put a little bit of order and that's when I found one of these:
An empty ribbon spool. And no, I haven't use that many this year. The ones in the picture above were used last year in this pumpkin project.
If you've followed me for a while you already know that I collect those, or better yet, I like to recycle them.
So, with the empty ribbon spool in hand, the idea of a Christmas wreath was born.
- Pom poms in different colors and sizes
- Hot glue gun
- 1 empty ribbon spool
You can find most of the materials at Michael's
Wrap the ribbon all around the spool, securing it with hot glue.
Grab the biggest pomp poms and attach them in equidistant places on the spool's edge.
Continue hot gluing the medium and then, the smaller pom poms in the same manner until the wreath is completely full. Don't forget the outer edge.
Your little wreath can be used to decorate your Christmas tree...
Or as a cute accent on a present.
Have you ever recycled those spools? What have you done with them?
