Christmas in May – Hints and TipsTip: What To Make With Empty Thread Spools
For some reason, I have always saved empty spools in all sizes, shapes, and colours, and have acquired quite a collection including the wooden ones from I’m not sure how long ago. It didn’t feel right to throw them out. I felt that something could be done with them.
One idea was threading them together to make a kind of doll. Ages ago, I read somewhere that they could be glued end on end to make supports for small shelves. Interesting idea, that!
What I started doing with mine was to make Christmas garlands. They can be used to decorate a Christmas tree or hung in our sewing rooms to add some Christmas cheer. It’s a good way to use up small Christmasy scraps, too!

Enjoy come Christmas!
