Primary Technique: General Crafts

Occasion/Theme: Winter

Easy

Materials:

  • Thread spools with wrappers intact
  • Beads of various sizes – I used a thrift store necklace that I took apart with wire cutters
  • Bead findings such as eye pins, wire, caps to create dangles
  • Ribbon
  • Ornament hangers
  • Fishing line
  • Scissors & wire cutters

 

Instructions:

  1. Remove the label from the top and/or bottom of the thread spool.
     
  2. Create a dangle of beads (I cut apart a portion of the necklace) Using beads, eye pins etc.
     
  3. Thread a 10″ length of fishing line through the eye pin at the top of your dangle. Insert both ends of fishing line up through the thread spool.
     
  4. Insert fishing line through a large bead at the top of the spool.
     
  5. Add a medium size bead and then insert one end of the fishing line through a small seed bead. Tie a double knot, wrapping the fishing line around the outside of the seed bead.
     
  6. Tie fishing line around the bottom of an ornament hook and tie a double knot.
     
  7. Insert both ends of the fishing line back through the seed bead and tie a double knot, trim.
     
  8. Wrap a 10″ length of ribbon between the top of the spool and the large bead and tie a bow.
