These ribbon spool ornaments are one of my favorite to make – I usually add them to the top of the present.  They recycle which is great and they are fast and easy which is even better.  Even the kids could help make these.  Here is a quick tutorial on how to make them. You will need some old ribbon or thread spools, (these ones are from American Crafts ribbons) patterned paper, stickers or embellishments and twine.

Dec1

Trace the spool onto the patterned paper twice, once for each side, cut out and glue them on.  You can trim an excess after they are dried.

Dec2

Wrap some twine or ribbon around the inside of the spool.

Dec3

Once the inside of the spool is covered leave a loop of twine at the top and then glue the end onto the inside of the spool.

Dec4

Take another peice of twine and lay it underneath the loop.

Dec5

Pull it tight and make a bow.

Dec6

Decorate the outside of the spool – I used the Simple Stories DIY Christmas collection for these. 

Dec7

Here is the final result.
