This picture shows maybe one-fourth of the finished wreath. I can't tell how the spools and other items were attached. I can't see any of the called-for mini mirrors. The instructions are no more help than the picture. I appreciate the idea, though.

Hi there! I found a bigger image of the wreath at this URL, and I'll add it to the project. Unfortunately I couldn't find more thorough instructions, but hopefully the larger image helps! http://www.craftychica.com/2009/12/crafters-holiday-wreath/ Enjoy!

Wow what a super creative idea this wreath is for any sewer or crafter in the family or even a friend or just for something different. Using spools of thread,embroidery thread and maybe even ribbon you can make it your own creation. This is a great to put in your sewing or crafting room and you can even keep it up year round. This is also a great way to use up things you no longer want or need. You can even use up those empty spools and paint them too. I love this and it will make a great gift idea. Thanks.

A friend of mine went to an estate sale and bought me a whole big shoebox full of vintage spools of thread of every color and size and most on wooden spools! I was overjoyed until I tried to,use them! They were so old, the cotton thread broke off as soon as I pulled on it.... However now I have a super project that can utilize all those pretty thread spools! Thanks for sharing!

We don't get a full size picture of this so I can see the entire wreath with the chipboard Christmas message? I think this is such a cool idea! Who would ever think of using such trinkets to make a holiday wreath? Aren't spools of thread so very inexpensive? I like the idea. Thank you for the inventive project!
