Here is a gift idea I would like to share. These spools of thread can hold
pictures, recipes, button cards or love notes.
They can be used as placeholders on tables or share a favorite Bible Verse.
I thought these would make nice ''I LOVE YOU'' gifts for MOTHERS' DAY.
Pick a color you have or make more than one!
You will need bailing wire and pliers
and hot glue gun.
~How to make a heart~
Loop at the sides and then back to the center.
Hot glue in the center hole.
Hot glue a pinch of moss.
Ready for decorating.
~Another variation for the small spools.~
Make your heart, with pliers.
Cut off extra wire using pliers.
Hot glue in center of spool.
Add a pinch of moss with hot glue. Then go through your crafting
scraps and see what you find. Small bits of lace, ribbon and tiny
flowers, butterflies or other embellishments will look beautiful.
The small birds I had were orange, I used acrylic paint to change their look.
I added a bit of white glue in places and
sprinkled with white glitter.
A close -up of the blue one.
In the kitchen with one of my Moms' best recipes,
in her own handwriting !
Pretty colors all together.
They are so small, I'm having a hard time getting a good picture.
I found this child size chair and platter while thrift shopping today. I thought
it would be a good photo prop.
Make a few of these and leave a comment, tell me what colors were your favorite.
Share with someone you love, and don't forget to tell them so.... often!
Have a wonderful day!
