These were so simple to craft up; I even enlisted the help of my 5 year old. No gluing or sewing involved. If you can wrap and tie a knot this is the perfect homemade ornament for you. With just a few supplies you could make a whole army of thread spool ornaments. Wouldn’t they look adorable atop a present?
bakers twine or embroidery thread
Wrap your twine or thread one time around the spool. Secure with a knot.
Continue to wrap until your spool is covered. Push down the rows depending on how tight you want it.

Handmade ornaments make the perfect gift. Every year we make handmade ornaments for the grandparents. We’ve made upcycled Scrabble ornaments, chalkboard ornaments, and every year a new photo canvas ornament for their trees. This year I think these thread spools will go to someone crafty in my life.
Does your family do handmade Christmas ornaments?
