spools
 I had mentioned in another post that I might have a craft crush on little wooden spools.  They are just so cute and versatile!

I thought they would make darling little holders.
I could see using them to hold place cards,
table numbers,
business cards,
or even photos.
There are so many possibilities!

I started by painting the spools.  I used crackle paint on the green one and spray paint on the other two.

I used Mod Podge to glue a circle of paper to the bottom.

Then I filled the hole with seed beads, dropped some E6000 on top, and glued a button, cabochons, or paper flower on top.  I then inserted a memo pin (Tim Holtz line).

Finally, I used Mod Podge to adhere a strip of paper to the spool.

Pretty cute, don’t you think?
What might you use this tiny spool for?  I’m always looking for new ideas!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoying another tutorial for a fast, frugal, and fabulous project.
