Wooden Spool Message Tutorial

April 10, 2013


There are a handful of things I always keep my eyes open for when I’m at an antique store. Among them are old, wooden spools. Empty or full of thread, I love them. I always think I’ll find a use for them and here’s a tutorial on one of those uses.
What You’ll Need:


– fabric to cut into strip
– hot glue gun
– letter stamps/stamp pad
– ruler
– scissors
– embellishments (ribbon, twine, washi tape, lace, etc.)

Step 1 – Measure the width of your spool and cut a strip of your fabric at that width


Step 2 – stamp your message

Step 3 – Glue the end of the fabric strip to your spool. I added washi tape to mine to “pretty it up”

Step 4 – roll up fabric around spool and punch a hole at the end (if you wish)

Step 5 – loop twine in punched hole and wrap around spool

Step 6 – Embellish, as desired. Pass on to those you love as a special keepsake!
