Make a Christmas tree ornament using tiny spools.

I’m thrilled to once again participate in the 31 Days of Ornaments blog hop!  Several talented crafters join together to share a different handmade ornament each day.  Make sure you read to the end of this post to see the 30 other ornament ideas!


I love miniatures! Maybe it’s because I’m tiny, myself, but I’m often drawn to teeny versions of real life “stuff”. Tiny unfinished wood spools are a staple in my craft stash because there are so many ways to use them (like I did here). I decided to turn them into a little bitty Christmas tree for the holidays. This wood spool Christmas tree would make a cute ornament or piece of table decor. Or, like my daughter, you can add it to a doll house!

Turn tiny wooden spools into an adorable miniature Christmas tree ornament! Fun project to make and to display. I

  1. Love your sweet tree! The green glittery covers on the spools are going to look so pretty on your tree when the tree lights make glitter.

  2. This is SO sweet, I have a friend with a fabulous sewing room (I’m not jealous honestly!) I would love to try and make this for her to decorate her favourite room in the house!
