I had these wooden spools just hanging around in my house. I think I got them at an antique store and figured I could do something cute with them. Well, it happened.
I made little animals and shapes out of air dry clay. It was pretty easy to use. Once they were dry (mine sat here for over a month- whoops), you can paint them with acrylic paint.
|I made this one look kinda like our little yellow house and our little pup.|
|The rest were random.|
Once the paint is dry, hot glue them on top of your spools. and wrap the spools with twine, string, or yarn to make them look complete.
I feel like these would be cute to make for the holidays... Valentines Day, Easter, Christmas, Hanukkah, Eid...anything with a symbol that you could make out of clay.
