Just wow! This will actually be perfect for birthday parties. Either for decor or giveaways, these chimes will set an appeal on parties.

Wow, those are some colorful chimes! They would be fun to make, but wooden thread spools are not that easy to find, at least for me. All the thread I buy comes on that styrofoam type of spool and they're too light to be of any use like that. Are there brands or types that come on wooden spools?

This DIY spool chime makes such an impactful presence. I did not realize that you create several of these spool chimes and then attach many of them to a yarn covered embroidery hoop. I thought it was just one, a long string with the bell on the end. I have seen those types of chimes at home decor stores and they are good for hanging on your door knobs. However, this one really makes quite a statement! I love that I can paint and choose my own colors of beads and ribbon to coordinate with my own decor. It can really be customized!

I have a ton of wooden spools that I just do not have the heart to,get rid of for sentimental reasons... Spools that my mom and I used back in the day, yet I could not think of anything to do,with them. Now I am considering making these lovely little,chimes which are so much more delicate and less disturbing for those folks who don't care for the larger louder types of chimes. I could see also,adding some ribbon, little buttons or even painting on a name for special personalization as a gift. This would be so enchanting in a baby's room as a mobile over the crib. So,cute, thanks for sharing! I have a ton of wooden spools that I just do not have the heart to,get rid of for sentimental reasons...
