Primary TechniqueJewelry Making



  • Slim sewing thread spool, color: of your choice
  • 2 strips of lightweight lace or lace ribbon, 2.75 inches long and 0.98 inches wide each
  • 2 pieces of narrow satin ribbon, 9 inches long each, to tie in a bow around both ends of the candy bar
  • Small pearls, beads and buttons, tiny fabric flowers – you could pick one type or a combination of all
  • Brooch pin
  • Strong and crystal clear craft glue



  1. Secure the loose thread end.  To do that, pass it tightly through the readymade cuts on the spool end (If there are no readymade cuts use a little glue).  Trim the end of the thread.
  2. After you’ve secured the thread, apply a little glue on both ends of your thread spool. Wrap  the lace around these ends. The lace ends must overlap (about 0.78 - 0.98 inches).  Wait for the glue to dry completely before you proceed. Trim the lace, if necessary.

  3. Tie the satin ribbons into a bow on each end. Trim the ribbons. Apply a tiny blob of crystal clear craft glue on each bow to make sure they won’t get untied. Wait till the glue dries.
  4. Turn the spool candy bar to its back side and secure the brooch pin with your strong craft glue. Again, wait for the glue to harden.
  5. Embellish as you wish, and your unique Spool Candy Bar Brooch is ready to wear with pride.
